Getting Your Governors Prepared For Ofsted
GETTING YOUR GOVERNORS PREPARED FOR OFSTED
Are your governors ready for inspection?
Or could they be judged to require improvement?
The contribution of governors to the school is evaluated as part of the judgement on ‘Leadership and
Management’. If governors are judged to require improvement then the whole of the ‘Leadership’ area of
the Inspection Framework’ is judged to ‘require improvement’. It is therefore crucial that the governors understand the importance of their role in contributing to the inspection judgements.
Chris will explain how:
- Inspectors will evaluate how effectively governors challenge and hold senior leaders to account for all aspects of the school's performance and ensure financial stability.
- Inspectors will expect governors to know about the strengths and weaknesses of the school.
- Inspectors will expect school governors to be familiar with, and understand, performance data, including the information that the school data dashboard presents for their school.
He will work with the delegates to help them action plan for the inspection to ensure that they have all key areas covered and that they can aim for a judgement of outstanding.
