Understanding your data – new guidance for academy board trustees and school governors

Understanding your data – new guidance for academy board trustees and school governors

Consultant: Ruth Murton and Steve BarkerDate posted: July 2018

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has published new guidance, to support maintained school governors and academy trustees’ understanding of the range of data that should be available to them to inform their discussions and decisions.

Having regular sight of key data enables boards to understand ‘root causes’ behind barriers to learning and the drivers behind success. This new guidance contains tables, tools and templates with examples of how they can be used.

Governors in maintained schools and Board Trustees may find it useful to compare the information they receive with the key themes in this guide.

Handling Parental Complaints and Conducting an Investigation Webinar

This Better Governor webinar will take place on February 13th at 08.00. It will explore how governors, trustees and those serving on Local Academy Committees ensure that parental complaints are handled effectively within their schools. Governing Boards are required to ensure that the school or academy has effective systems in place for listening to the views of parents and carers, and responding to their concerns. Governors may also be involved in commissioning or conducting investigations. This webinar will explore best practice issues surrounding parental complaints handling.
