Downloadable report forms

We've made 2 proformas to reflect the most common types of school visit that you'll go on:

  • Learning walks are where you'll go around the school with the relevant staff member to get a feel for a particular area. You're likely to talk to a range of staff members and pupils 
  • Formal monitoring visits are where you discuss the progress of the school in a particular area with the relevant staff member

If you're a governor

Use them to structure your visits, and as reminders of what to look for and what to ask. They'll also help you write up your findings to share with your board. 

If you haven't already, take a look at our one-page summary to get up to speed on governor school visits. 

If you're a chair

Share these proformas with your board to make sure all your governors report back in a consistent manner. 

If you haven't already, take a look at our guide for chairs on governor school visits.
