Governor Mark is a national award. It is a kite mark which provides external evaluation of the quality of governance in schools and academies.
Governor Mark identifies national standards for good governance.
Governor Mark was developed to recognise the difference governing boards make to school and academy leadership and management. It is a mechanism to achieve accreditation against an agreed quality standard. There are many evaluation tools available which focus on process and actions, but Governor Mark is the only quality assessment process that clearly identifies the IMPACT of the governing board ON SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT AND OUTCOMES for children and young people.
