Support Tools for Self-Review/Peer-Review
A range of key resources is provided for Governing Boards to help them strengthen their governance arrangements. These tools can be used to evaluate the current effectiveness of the governance arrangements of the School/Trust.
Three tools are available for:
- Maintained Schools including Federated Schools
- Single Academies
- Multi Academy Trusts
The tools come with some guidance about how they can be used by an individual governing board and as a part of the school’s peer-review process. Having identified their profile of Governance strengths and weaknesses, governing boards will then be able to identify which parts of the Stronger Governance offer they are going to engage with to ensure that they are working as effectively as possible.

A Zoom video has been produced to support Governing Boards in making effective use of the tool. This presentation lasts approximately 25 mins.
The Governing Board of a federation of Lincolnshire primary schools used the review tool with the support of a Leader of Governance:
"This was an excellent process to focus the mind and involve groups of governors in in-depth discussion.
It informed our strategy for more effective governance and highlighted those areas where we needed to prioritise our CPD".
