Support for Headteachers

Why invest in The Key for your governors?

Effective governance and continual school improvement depend on a productive relationship between the headteacher and governing body. Ofsted advises that these relationships should be based on open, honest dialogue, a clear understanding of the different roles and responsibilities, and a shared commitment to securing the very best provision and outcomes for pupils.

 Membership of The Key will give your governors easy access to practical resources and authoritative, independent information and guidance. With everything they need at their fingertips, your governors will be better equipped to perform their role effectively and support you in driving school improvement.
