Coronavirus (COVID-19) —DfE publishes research on school response to pandemic

The Department for Education (DfE) has published a research paper exploring how school governors and trustees responded to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, whether the work of governing boards was affected, and the challenges that were faced. The report summarises four case studies, with a maintained school, a single academy trust, and two multi-academy trusts.

Key points from the report include:

• the main priorities for the 2021– 2022 academic year include: ensuring students have access to the full learning experience, helping students recover academically and socially after the pandemic, ensuring stable leadership, and restoring staff and pupil wellbeing

• in the future, governing bodies will likely move to a hybrid model of online and face-to-face meetings, as face-to-face meetings were considered vital for developing strategy whereas online meetings were considered more efficient and inclusive
