Sometimes a Governing Board might require members to confirm an agreement which is specific to the board.
Admins can use these in a variety of ways, perhaps even for Governor Induction (e.g. I confirm I have read the Governor Induction pack).
Note: make sure the relevant document(s) have been uploaded to the board's Documents area before you begin.
(Can't see Confirmations on your board? Get in touch via the blue chat bubble.)
➡️ How to add confirmations
Head to the About tab of the Governing Board or Trust Board section on GovernorHub.
Select 'Add a new confirmation'
Write a Confirmation Statement to appear as the text for users to click to confirm.
For example, "I agree to abide by the Governing Board's Code of Conduct"
TIP: Keep it short and in the first person. This can't be changed once created.
Then add a description below the statement (this is optional).
For example, "The Code of Conduct sets out expectations on and commitment required from school governors in order for the governing board to properly carry out its work within the school."
If you want to attach the relevant document - click on the link icon
If the Document is already on GovernorHub, you can search for it here. Once selected, choose the text to display i.e Code of Conduct.
TIP: The description and any links can be edited at a later date (e.g. if you update your Code of Conduct). It's only the statement that can't.
Once you're happy, click Save!
➡️ Where board members click to confirm
Members will find these Confirmations under the General Confirmations in their profile page, under Declarations.
Admins can post a message on the Noticeboard asking members to go to their profile page and complete the confirmation.
➡️ Downloading a report of confirmations
Admins can download a list of Confirmations for all board members in the Downloads tab under Governing Board/Trust Board.
