This report sets out the key findings from a survey carried out in partnership with TES which aims to inform NGA’s policy and research work for the year ahead.

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.

Since carrying out this annual survey in 2011, 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  2017 and 17 July 2017.
