Information Governance covers the important areas of Data Protection, Information Security, Freedom of Information, Records Management and Information Sharing. With the Information Commissioners Office having the power to fine organisations who do not keep data safe, as well as a public who are much more aware of their information rights, information governance is a critical area for schools to get right.
The Partnership Board is the representative governing body of LSP. The Board includes one headteacher from each school Cluster, School Governors, Schools Forum, Teaching Schools and the Local Authority. Headteachers make up the majority of members. Terms of Reference, Code of Conduct and Register of Interests have all been agreed and are available to view here. The Board meet every half term with agendas and minutes available here. As much as possible board meetings are timetabled to receive feedback from school Cluster meetings. The board has a development plan, scrutinises data and performance across Lambeth schools and plans targeted events. The LSP board has considered areas of local education need and established five priority Working Groups: Challenge For All, Raising The Game, Teach Lambeth, Strategic School Governance, Coordinating CPD & Training Offer and Working Together - Event Management. To support the implementation and impact of the LSP Working Groups, the board has secured the services of an experienced Consultant, Lambeth Council National Management Trainees and has recently employed an LSP Co-ordinator who will continue to steer partnership projects and events over the next period.
