National Leaders of Governance (NLG)
Are your school details up to date on gIAS?
Schools need to ensure information is updated in the Get information about schools (GIAS) register. Whilst NLGs can’t update GIAS themselves, there is a “responsible” person at each school that can update the data. Guidance can be found on GIAS itself.
Get information about schools (GIAS) is the Department for Education’s official register of educational establishments in England and Wales. It contains vital information about schools and is the national database of school governors. The data is used by key departmental digital services, data collections, funding calculations and statistical analysis. The contact information held within GIAS is also used to support the promotion of important policy announcements and urgent communications with schools and academy trusts in emergencies. For these reasons, it is essential that all establishments ensure their GIAS record details, including contact information are up to date.
