Governors in Dudley are able to respond to
two separate forms of consultation:-
Nationally, we will find a list of current consultations available
within the website of the Department for Children, Schools and
www.dcsf.gov.uk/consultations/ where there are full details of
the consultations and how to respond to them. There are clear
outline indications as to the nature of each consultation
together, in each case, with the date by which comments should be
Locally, and in contrast, we may respond to consultations issued
by Dudley’s Directorate of Childrens’ Services, which relate
specifically to issues applicable to Dudley schools. These can be
www.dudley.gov.uk/index.asp?pgid=17359 but many of those to be
found there are old with closure dates sometimes two years or more
in the past, which makes the site far less user-friendly. However
the descriptions of the nature of each consultation are quite
clear as are the mechanisms for responding to them.
In general, responses may come either from individuals or from
corporate governing bodies …… and sometimes from other sources
(e.g. parents, teachers, councillors, students, local groups)
which may have an interest in the relevant issues.
DAGB would encourage members to express their concerns about
either National or Local issues in this way.
