Schools: Governing Bodies

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 15 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families whether he plans to reform the school governors system. (205792)

We set out our plans for making school governing bodies more effective in the Children’s Plan. We believe that smaller, more highly skilled governing bodies, alongside improved governor training will provide more effective governance for schools. As a first step, a stakeholder working group has been established to consider reforming governance in this way.
