Readiness for Ofsted: Is your governing body aware of the expectations of governors within the most recent Ofsted handbook? Ensure that governors are best equipped to demonstrate their effectiveness to inspectors by booking a bespoke session.
Strategic visioning: We will support you in establishing a shared strategic vision for the school by facilitating a collaborative session.
External reviews of governance and facilitated self-reviews: What are your strengths and areas for development? We offer a tiered approach with expert facilitation at its heart. You can choose from a 'Light', 'Standard' or 'Comprehensive' review.
