GLM is the working name for the organisation managing Governor Mark, working with partners to promote and support the National Standards and Governor Mark process.

Governor Mark

Governor Mark identifies national standards for good governance. It can be used as is a governing body self-evaluation tool based on the descriptors for governance found in the 2003 – 2005 Ofsted Framework. This remains the finest description of what good governance looks like.

Please note the cost of a single Governor Mark assessment will increase to £995 + Vat for all applications received after 1 November 2015. The cost of Governor Mark assessments where a board is responsible for the governance in more than one school will also increase from 1 November 2015.  Please contact for more information and a quote.
