EIF: Questions Demonstrating Effective Challenge (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 school’s 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 pup ...
