How to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for your school (for Governors and Trustees) Download Flyer
Overview The Governance Handbook states that:
"the purpose of governance is to provide confident, strategic leadership and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance".
The three core functions of governance, clarify this, the first of which is to:
Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
Many governing boards lack the confidence or in-depth understanding of their role to fulfil this aspect of their responsibilities. This training will provide real examples of how to lead your school strategically.
The following will be explored:
What does a good school vision look like and how to develop it
How to involve stakeholders to ensure you have a shared vision
Why is a strong ethos so important and the boards role in setting and safeguarding this
How to develop a 3-5 year strategy and translate this into annual improvement plans
Understanding the important of self-evaluation, using data and assessing impact/school effectiveness
Who should attend? All governors, trustees and school leaders.
