School Governance Strategy

We have developed a School Governance Strategy to support and secure effective governance of schools in the City, within the context of local and national developments that are shaping the role of school governance. The Strategy includes:

  • Manchester’s vision to develop strong, accountable governing bodies with access to a pool of highly skilled, well informed governors, who understand the City’s priorities for its children, young people and residents,
  • the elements of effective governance that Manchester aspires to for all governing bodies,
  • the role of the Council in supporting effective governance,
  • the role of the School Governance Unit in supporting the development of the Strategy and managing the statutory duties that the Council holds around school governance.
