School governance

Never has there been a greater need for strong and effective governance across a richly mixed economy of schools – either stand alone or in varying forms of partnership, including Teaching Schools Alliances, Federations and Multi Academy Trusts. Governance is becoming more complex, requiring greater accountability of educational standards and management of key risks.

The DfE governance handbook and competency framework contains Departmental guidance on the roles and duties of governing boards, and advice on the skills, knowledge and behaviours they need to be effective.
