The Controlled Schools’ Support Council (CSSC) initiated governor engagement sessions that were delivered during meetings at the request of governors of individual member schools within the controlled sector. The following report provides an analysis of the discussions during the 103 engagement sessions which took place from December 2018 to June 2019.
This report provides a snapshot of shared education practice across the controlled sector and the partnerships that exist. It showcases the actions some schools have taken to develop shared education projects, as well as exploring the benefits, challenges and pitfalls.
To ensure that CSSC is meeting the needs of the controlled sector, all member schools were given the opportunity to share their views through a survey sent to member schools at the end of February 2019.
This analysis explores the responses given by school principals and will help to shape CSSC’s programme of work and ensure that the work it does is beneficial to controlled schools individually, and for the sector as a whole.
