Consecutive Ofsted Frameworks for the Evaluation of Schools have been consistent in the requirement that schools have a robust system of self-evaluation in place. The most effective governing boards not only contribute to this process, but also strengthen it, as a result of their own self-evaluation and development.
Governing boards striving for a 'good' or 'outstanding' Ofsted report, know that good governance is a key element of securing such judgements.
This is why Integra Schools, Governor Services recommends that every governing board should regularly and systematically evaluate their practice.
The Integra Schools faciliatated self-evaluation tool is designed to support governing boards in reviewing and developing:
Strategic Leadership - How well we know our school
Relationships and Responsibilities - How well we work in partnership
Functioning and Legal Duties - How well we ensure efficient practice
