Dear forum users, We have taken down several threads which were about the forums and one thread dealing with a detailed case about a particular child, posted by a parent.

If you look at the front page of the discussion board, you will see this: "The discussion board allows you to share information and experiences with other governors. ... The discussion board ... is intended as a forum for peer discussion amongst governors."

This clearly indicates that the forum is for the use of school governors to support one another and share information.

In addition, the forum rules state: "The purpose of the threads on the discussion board is to allow users to post messages relating to school governance issues, so please not to post off-topic material."

This is why we have taken down several threads about the forum itself.

We do not like to intervene in your discussions, but we will continue to do so actively where necessary to allow the forums to function as a constructive peer-to-peer dialogue between school governors, in line with our stated remit and rules.

Best wishes,

The moderator
