Target Group: Governors
Tutors: Colin Powell and Carol Jerwood
Governors undertake important responsibilities and in order to do so effectively they need to understand the context in which their school operates. Visits during working hours are vital in enabling governors to understand their school. This workshop session will enable governors to carry out effective school visits and provide practical examples of how to conduct a visit including how to:
- Prepare for a visit
- Focus a visit to a classroom
- Report back on a visit
This session will also assist governors in providing evidence to OFSTED that they understand the need to monitor what is happening in their school and have a clear understanding of their role in supporting and challenging the school to improve.
