The Governing Board Healthcheck gives your board an opportunity to review its effectiveness against key elements from the latest Ofsted framework.

How should we use it?

The healthcheck is not designed to be a straight-forward 'tick-box' exercise, rather it's a chance for your board to discuss and reflect on what it currently knows and understands (e.g. what evidence it has seen) about the school and its pupils.

As such, we suggest that you download the healthcheck work sheet (below) and either discuss your answers together as a board, or ask all members to complete the sheet separately and then share and discuss your answers, recording any necessary actions.

There are 14 questions in total. Each question relates to an aspect of the Ofsted framework e.g. QE Intent (Quality of Education, Intent)


Note: only admins can select the answers

Once completed, the pie chart at the top of the page uses a traffic light colour coding system 🚦 to give a quick glance impression of how the board is doing i.e. doing well (green) work-to-do (orange and red).

The chart will show 100% complete if all 14 questions have been answered.
