National Governance Association Spotlight on Disadvantage – Survey Launched
February 9, 2018
This week, National Governance Association launched a survey as part of its efforts to improve understanding of the governance role in supporting disadvantaged pupils. The survey is for those governing in schools across England, and asks governors and trustees about the principles underpinning their school’s use of pupil premium funding and their school’s success in helping disadvantaged pupils. The survey takes around fifteen minutes to complete.
There is currently little research on the role of governance in helping disadvantaged pupils. Correcting this will allow the NGA to better support schools that are looking to use their pupil premium effectively.
