Self Evaluation for Governors

The FFT Governor Dashboard, developed in partnership with the National Governors'' Association and the Wellcome Trust, provides a range of information to help governors support and challenge the school leadership team.

The Governor Dashboard clearly displays information about results and pupil progress, subject performance progress of pupil groups, school context, attendance and highlights some of the strengths and weaknesses of the school, making it the ideal overview for planning towards the inspections too.

All subscribing schools can download the Governors Dashboard from FFT Aspire and share it easily with governors. Alternatively, governors can be provided with their own account giving access to not only the Govenor Dashboard but also a range of other information to aid their ''support and challenge'' role. The new Aspire has been enhanced to also include overviews of all key stages, providing a wealth of information in an accessible format.

Free e-learning modules and downloadable resources are available to help you get the most out of your Governor Dashboard.

''Inspectors will expect governors to know about the strengths and weaknesses of the school. Inspectors will expect school governors to be familiar with, and understand, perofromance data.''
