Role of Governors
The governing board and headteacher have a shared responsibility for setting a future strategy that reflects the values of their school. In practice, this means:
- Articulating a clear vision of where they want their school(s) to be in three to five years’ time, reflecting their values and ethos.
- Using self-evaluation to identify priorities that reflect the current context and challenges.
- Agreeing priorities that will achieve that vision and align with available resources.
- The governing board monitoring progress within an annual cycle, which provides a focus for their meetings.
