Asking Challenging & Constructive Questions Based on the Key Ofsted Judgements (Governors) (EVENT FULL)

The role of the school governor has changed, and continues to change. Aside from juggling work and family commitments, governors must know their schools well and meet the expectations set by the Department for Education and Ofsted. Knowing your school well and asking challenging questions are two of the eight elements of effective governance.

The role of the school’s Governing Board is to challenge the status quo and to ask, “so what is the impact of that?” With education changing apace, it is vital that “impact?” becomes the mantra adopted by all governors to ensure the progress of pupils ...

Getting it Right as a Parent Governor (Governors)

Currently, school governing boards are required to have elected parent governors. Effective governing boards have a significant impact on school improvement and all board members, including parent governors, need a sound understanding of their role and responsibilities.

Parent governors are elected by other parents at the school. Any parent, or carer, of a registered pupil at the school at the time of election is eligible to stand for election as a parent governor. Parent governors may continue to hold office until the end of their term of office even if their child leaves the school.
