The work of school governors is important, worthwhile but increasingly demanding.
A good set of governors can make a considerable difference to a school.
At the heart of good governance are good relationships: with one another, the head teacher, staff, parents, the community, and children. In these relationships the role of
school governors has been widely described as that of the ‘critical friend’.
This book provides information and guidance to help the school governor fulfil this
important, demanding and worthwhile role.
