Event code SCH 21/429 
Event description The Governance Handbook states that Governors need to know their school, If accountability is going to be robust and their vision for the school is to be achieved. Through pre-arranged visits and meetings with key staff, which have a clear focus, the board can see for themselves how policies and improvement plans are working in practice. Visits also provide an opportunity to talk with pupils, staff and parents, to build relationships and to demonstrate commitment.

Through discussion and activities, this course will explores how governor visits can be structured to benefit the school and to make the most of governor and staff time. Given possible COVID-19 restrictions, this session will also consider other ways governors can build this knowledge. 



  • At the end of the session governors will:

  • Understand the purpose of school visits and how they support a boards strategic function

  • Consider the practicalities of governor / trustee visits and best practice

  • Consider alternatives to ‘physical’ visits during any possible COVID-19 restrictions

  • Ask questions

  • Share practice with other governors



The session will be facilitated by Therese McNulty, School Governance Lead for Ealing and herself a governor.
