The National Governance Association (NGA) has been running a survey of school governors and trustees in partnership with TES since 2011. The aim of the survey is, in the absence of any official data or academic research, to provide an overview of the state of school governance in England and also to gather views on of the concerns of those who govern.
Over the years, the scope of the survey has increased and so too has the number of responses; we were delighted to hear from 5,338 governors, trustees and academy committee members between the 12 June and 17 July this summer.
This year, NGA has produced a report which sets out the key findings from the survey but we will continue to explore the data throughout the year to inform the NGA’s policy work and research.
