I have found The Key to be a fantastic resource for me and my fellow governors. The articles posted are really easy to follow and with just the right amount of detail. They are always on top of all the latest developments in the world of education, enabling me as a governor to keep up to speed in this fast changing landscape. Not only that, but the email newsletters can quickly bring things to your attention and provide quick links to the relevant articles that I may be interested in. I also find the “Quick Read” summary sheets really useful for passing on to governors who perhaps don’t have the time to read the detailed articles. The Key is also a great source of information for new governors, who want to get up to speed on things, and also for when we need to check what “the rules are” on certain aspects of governance. As a National Leader of Governance, I also encourage governors of any school I work with to have a look at The Key and the extremely valuable resources that can be found there. I use the key quite often for me to get up to speed on things or for me to find out about best practice or rules/regulations. I’m more than happy to recommend The Key for any and all governing bodies.
