Governing body role in self-evaluation at Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, Denbighshire
Two special schools were involved in our thematic report about school governors.
At Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, we note that the governing body has a well-established system in place to self-evaluate its effectiveness. Each year, governors complete a self-evaluation activity, which allows them to identify areas for improvement for the governing body itself. As a result, governors recognised the need for them to have a strong presence in the school and to be involved in first-hand evidence gathering. This led to them revising and expanding the role of their link governors and has strengthened the governing body’s ability to evaluate the progress the school is making against the priorities of the school improvement plan.
