How to be strategic (for Academies and Maintained schools)


Governors have a responsibility for the strategic direction of the school. In real terms this means that they should have a clear view about how they see the school developing over the next five years and which priorities they are likely to have to face. It will have a direct impact on items of significant expenditure and help to plan for these in the longer term.


Course objectives:

  • To consider a ‘framework’ to help set the strategic direction of the school
  • To explore how the strategic plan operates alongside the school development plan and the school’s action plans
  • To understand how the strategic plan can be monitored and evaluated over time
