Effective governance - Building inclusive schools

As a board, you play a vital role in leading the future direction and performance of your school.

These guidelines are a valuable resource for boards on how to show ethical leadership and build an inclusive school with confidence.

They will help you understand your governance role and how to fulfil the responsibilities that go with it - particularly as they relate to meeting the needs of all the students in your school.

These guidelines should be read together with the other Effective governance resources developed for school boards.
