Monitoring and evaluating the work of a school play a major role for a governing body. At High Down, we have a detailed monitoring schedule which is very closely linked to the School Improvement Plan. Maths, literacy, pupil premium provision to name but a few form a large part of monitoring visits carried out by the governors. These visits ensure the governors have a detailed understanding of the life and workings of the school and are able to both support and challenge the senior leadership team.
