Self-Evaluation for Governors
It is essential that governing boards have high expectations for staff and pupils, with a commitment to continuous improvement. To do this there is a requirement to have a clear understanding of the views and needs of pupils, staff, parents, carers and local communities and an objective view of their own competencies.
Regular evaluation of the effectiveness of governance and the performance of schools is an important step in improving the quality of leadership of the Governing Board.
