Study time: 10 minutes

Any monitoring you undertake as a governor or trustee should be about seeking reassurance that operational activity is realising the vision set by those who govern, by checking that the ethos and culture of your school(s) is as intended, and that policies are being implemented effectively.

This module is a short audit tool to help you write an action plan to ensure that your monitoring is as effective as possible.

The tool will:

  • Help you assess how well you currently undertake monitoring as part of your governance role, and identify what you can do to make it even better
  • Take you through 10 lead questions related to effective monitoring
  • Generate a suggested action plan template for you to download and keep, as well as providing you with a handy checklist
