School Governor Survey

Page 1 of 5

Closes 20 May 2022


The Department is undertaking a survey on aspects of school governance, to help identify how to better support Boards of Governors in their work to deliver outcomes for children and young people.


There are currently 2 key themes around which views are being gathered – Becoming a Governor and Being a Governor.

We would be very grateful if you could complete this short survey which will help us identify the key areas for improvement.  Following receipt of survey responses, the Department will then consider areas for short, medium and longer term implementation.

This exercise will focus on the existing support for Boards of Governors.  Those issues which will be addressed by the Independent Review of Education are excluded from this exercise.

Your response will be anonymous and any views you express will be treated in confidence.
