We've had issues about governors either not abiding by confidentiality or not understanding it. I'm thinking about introducing a code of conduct to emphasise this and also the notion of collective responsibility. If something is confidential, can you speak about it confidentiality to your partner / best friend? Can you speak about it to your family when everyone actually knows about the confidential issue but it has not formally been made public by the head teacher or Chair of governors? I think not but would appreciate any advice here. If we did have a code of conduct and then a parent governor or community governor then went against the code, what actions can and should be taken?
