Take the survey

School governors, trustees and local academy committee members – we want to know about your experience of school governance, your views on topical education policy and the way your governing board works.

Your answers to our annual survey – now in its tenth year – will make a significant contribution to what is known and understood about school governance in England. We’ll use the results to campaign on the issues that matter to you, amplify the voice of school governance across the education sector, and improve the support we – and others – offer to governing boards.

Whatever your role on the governing board, however long you’ve been involved in governance, we value the views and experience of all governors, trustees and local academy committee members in England. You do not need to be an NGA member to take part. Please share it with your wider networks.

Begin the survey now – you can save and return to your answers whenever you like before submitting them.

Depending on the answers you give, the survey will take around 15 minutes to complete. The survey closes on Tuesday 26 May at 5pm.

Although this survey is for school governance volunteers, we appreciate the support of clerks and executive leaders in sharing it with their board.
