Strong strategic planning and leadership is something every board needs in order to effectively shape the practice and culture of their schools.
This introduction to being strategic will cover how to ensure your vision is met through strengthening your board’s strategic approaches.
The purpose of the session
Department for Education’s (DfE) Competency Framework and Governance Handbook make it clear that strategic leadership is a core function for all governing boards and that effective boards ‘provide confident, strategic leadership to their organisations; they lead by example and set the tone from the top’. However, unpicking what it means to be strategic in practice can be a challenge for leaders, governors and trustees. By the end of the session your board will have a clear understanding of what constitutes strategic thinking and how it should inform planning cycles, monitoring and holding to account.
