  • We aim to build encouragement and support through focused and effective collaborative practice between governors and clerks that improves school governance and learning outcomes for all.
  • We will achieve this through fostering motivation and engagement in continuous improvement of school governance to achieve the very best teaching and learning.
  • We recognise that good and outstanding practice can be found in many places and contexts.
