How to engage your key stakeholders to improve your school for Governors & Trustees Download Flyer
Listening to stakeholders is a fundamental part of good governance to ensure the board knows how pupils, parents, and staff feel about the school.  This course will provide board members with practical guidance on how to engage with stakeholders to improve their school.

It is vital that Boards are connected with, and are answerable to, the communities they serve, particularly parents/carers. Boards should never become detached, distant, or unanswerable to parents/carers.

Boards have a key role to plan in listening to stakeholders, primarily parents, pupils and staff when leading their school strategically. Creating a shared vision, good communication channels and visibility of decision makers all helps to unite the school community in a common purpose of being the best school they can be for their community.  This session will explain the principles of boards responsibilities and give examples of how they can support their schools in this endeavour.

The following will be explored:

  • Identifying the success criteria for stakeholder engagement
  • How to gather stakeholder views
  • Creating a shared vision, values and strategy
  • Agreeing a communication strategy
  • How to measure stakeholder engagement and its impact
