He has worked in a range of good and outstanding schools and was formerly an advisor to Kent LEA and a Senior University Lecturer at Brighton, Cambridge and Canterbury Christ Church. He is a national trainer for ASP and is currently supporting academy chains on preparation for Ofsted and data strategy, as well as working with a range of alternative provisions.

How can school governors help in holding schools to account?
Governors are essential in holding school leaders to account for the quality of all-round education. But there’s a fine line between offering support and holding school leaders to account, and intruding in ways that make it more difficult for school leaders to do their job.  

This course is aimed at helping governors to develop their skills to:

  • Ask challenging informed questions confidently
  • Monitor all-round performance not just test results
  • Sensitively interrogate impact
  • Be a ‘critical friend’
  • Be contextually literate
  • Analyse regularly received reports
  • Work in partnership with school leaders to develop a strategic plan
