Governor Training - Ofsted Readiness for Governors: The Right Questions to Ask

  • This session is for any governor, whether new to the role or highly-experienced


Holding the school, and the Headteacher, to account is one of the core functions of governance, and in any Ofsted inspection, governors will be asked about how they have done this. Asking the right questions is a key skill for governors, and the answers to those questions are crucial for your role in challenging and supporting the school.


This session will cover:

  • How to look at the school’s data and outcomes and know what questions to ask
  • What to ask about leadership and management, teaching and behaviour
  • Implications for governors of the new Ofsted Framework
  • Preparation for questions that Ofsted might ask governors
  • Facilitator
  • Venue & Travel Information
