NGA and Ofsted have begun a joint research project that will investigate how governors and trustees are continuing to support and challenge schools during these difficult times.
The research will look at the short- and long-term impact of school closures on priorities for governors and trustees and how they are responding to new situations. We want to understand how governors and trustees in all types of schools are managing business as usual and thinking about the longer-term issues they may need to address when schools reopen.
We hope this research will give insight into how governance has responded to an extraordinary situation and support the work the NGA does providing advice and guidance to governors and trustees.
As part of this research we would like to speak to governors and trustees in different types of schools across different age phases. If you are interested in taking part in this research, please contact ResearchQuestion@Ofsted.gov.uk.
