The purpose of this leaflet is to help governors in their role as critical friends, supporting the work of the school. It suggests ways in which governors can find out about the progress children are making in school and also offer an element of challenge through their monitoring and evaluation of this progress.

We're sorry

Teachfind is temporarily down for scheduled maintenance

We're shifting Teachfind to a more powerful setup, so when it comes back it will be much faster than before.

We should be back up and running within a day or two.

In the meantime, why not find out about our new application Teacher Dashboard.

It turns Office365 into a powerful LMS, and it's free...

Tailors office365 to teaching.
