Ofsted evaluates the effectiveness of governance as part of the school’s leadership and management arrangements. This course will enable new governors to carry out their roles and responsibilities effectively, to support and challenge their schools and to contribute to raising standards.
It is helpful but not essential to have been to at least one governing body meeting before attending
By the end of the course governors will know more about:
•the strategic role of governors in school improvement, Ofsted expectations and governors’ main powers and duties
•how governors provide support and challenge; how to get organised; getting to know your school including the analysis of contextual data
•accountability and communication, working with the headteacher and staff; relationships with parents and the wider community
This four hour course is split over two evenings and governors should attend both dates listed below.
