Following the announcement by the Prime Minister yesterday (22 February) on the further opening of schools, the National Governance Association (NGA) has produced an information sheet summarising the key elements of the associated guidance and outlining the governing board’s role.
All schools will fully open to all pupils from 8 March. The Department for Education (DfE) has published updated operational guidance for schools in preparation.
NGA’s information sheet picks out the new and most important aspects of the guidance for boards to have regard to, and explains the role of the board in the lead up to full opening.
