The National Governors’ Association (NGA) wants schools to host an exclusive day for governors to share their “vision” with the local community, councillors and MPs.
The Growing Governance campaign, which has been launched to mark the association’s ten-year anniversary, aims to engage the “whole school community” in a debate about education.
The goal is to “celebrate the difference made by governors as strategic thinkers and leaders”, increase awareness about the role of governors, and challenge governors “to step up and embrace” the ability to take charge of what their school offers.
A spokesperson for the NGA says it is launching the campaign because there are a “number of barriers” that prevent boards from creating a “clear and meaningful school vision, not least the misconception that it is simply unnecessary or just a long-forgotten paragraph on the school’s website”.
The NGA says governors can combine their new Growing Governance resource pack with their A Framework for Governance guide to help them to create their vision and strategic plan.
