This requirement is explained in more detail here<https://www.gov.uk/government/news/national-database-of-governors>
The Department for Education (DfE) has recently informed us that a significant number of local authority maintained schools have yet to complete their governance fields on Edubase. Governors hold an important public office and this new measure is a helpful
way to increase transparency on those who govern our schools. While child protection and safeguarding investigations are rare, having this information in one place will make it quicker and easier to more accurately identify where someone is involved in
the governance of schools.
Can we remind schools of their duty to complete all the fields on Edubase in respect of each governor; all information will be encrypted and held securely so governors should not feel any concern about providing the data.
