Self Evaluation of Governance

360 degree feedback on the chair of governors
The local authority and BGA have been carrying out a governance risk and support assessment which encourages governing bodies to complete a self-assessment and identify gaps in their practice. Several governors have raised the issue of how to carry out a 360° of the chair of governors. In the following article  the chair of a local primary school explains how this was done in her school. If you’d like to share your experience or have any questions about the process please contact us at

A review of members’ contributions to the governing body.
The NGA have provided a questionnaire template designed for chairs to use when reviewing their colleagues’ contribution to the work of the governing board which can be found on the attachment below.
