Governing bodies are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of a school and its curriculum. School visits will help governors to understand more about their school and the reality of school life. Governor visits to classrooms are not a form of inspection but serve as a clear monitoring function on the implementation of the school’s strategic planning.
This has been challenging in COVID but the Governors have found creative ways to be involved with school life. They have managed to keep in touch with their linked class ensuring that they are monitoring and evaluating the curriculum.
