This audit has been designed to assist primary school governors in supporting school leaders in unprecedented times. The series of questions will enable governors to gain a full insight into the extra workload undertaken by senior leaders during lockdown and on an ongoing basis during the Covid-19 outbreak.
The document provides a list of questions and prompts to enable senior leaders to briefly summarize the additional work that has taken place above and beyond the normal leadership and management of a school. They can then reflect on the impact in terms of workload and then on their own well-being.
The list is not exhaustive, but has been designed to provide a succinct starting point for discussion and covers the major issues that have been faced by schools across the country.
