Governor Quality Assurance

Governors are strongly encouraged to develop a first-hand knowledge of the school. We recommend that new governors visit initially to learn and understand how leaders at Chesswood organise to meet their accountabilities. Following a number of visits supported by wider reading individual governors will develop more defined areas for further consideration forming ‘Key Lines of Enquiry’. At this point governors determine whether their time should be spent with continued broad focus or to concentrate on defined areas of focus, school leaders welcome either although the use of well-founded, evidence based key lines of enquiry enables continuity in school improvement and governance.

It is important that outcomes of governor visits are recorded. All governors are encouraged to complete the online form entry following a visit to Chesswood, outside school governor meetings. The online form may also be accessed directly from this LINK





Wherever a governor is unable to complete the online quality assurance form, it is possible to download and complete the hard copy form opposite (click on the image to download or follow this LINK).

Once complete please email the report to the Clerk to Governors
