Online Survey of Governors
The Eastern Daily Press and NGN are running an online survey of school governors. Many of you were kind enough to point out some technical problems which prevented completion of the survey. The EDP have now advised us that the survey has been re-launched and they would welcome responses from as many governors as possible - and for the question about total pupil numbers they have told us that if you are governor at multiple schools or a federation you should estimate the total number of pupils at all the schools you govern! So please go online and add your voice to the survey…
