Today we're publishing The EEF Guide to Becoming an Evidence-Informed School Governor and Trustee. It is designed to offer a quick way into the high-quality evidence the EEF makes freely available to all schools.

It offers practical next steps and tips for further reading framed around three key questions for governors to ask:

  • How well are pupils achieving in your school?
  • How effectively is your school spending its money?
  • How does your school support effective teaching and learning?

It recommends thinking of evidence as offering “best bets” – valuable starting points for a better-informed discussion in your governing board about how your school can improve.

The guide – which is free to read and download from the EEF’s website here – also includes key questions to ask before schools think about buying in a programme and four tips on making the most of your Pupil Premium.

We have also published a blog, filleting the new EEF guide to highlight 10 top tips governing boards can put into effect. You can read them here.
