Across SCSP we recognise that leadership is the ‘golden thread’ weaving through the success of a school. We know that having strong governance at all levels and supporting effective governance is critical to sustaining success. Effective challenge, the right support and accurate self-evaluation are key to any setting improving.
Effective governance is crucial to this success. It provides confident, strategic leadership and creates robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance. In line with the Governance Handbook key elements of strong governance can be summarised as:
Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy
Accountability that drives up educational standards, financial performance and effectively manages risk
People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity
Structures which reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities
Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements
Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance
