Getting the relationship with governors right can be one of the most problematic challenges for school leaders. When governors are engaged with the school they can fulfil a vital role, anchoring the school to its local community and providing support and direction for the senior leadership team. This course will give you a comprehensive guide to managing this relationship effectively and how to develop the capacity of the governing body to lead and support school improvement.
  • Clarify the governing body’s roles and responsibilities
  • Identify how to involve governors in school life and help them fulfil their role as ‘critical friends’
  • Establish how to work with governors on self-evaluation, target setting and school improvement planning
  • Help governors understand the school and education in general
  • Build good relationships with the governing body and how to manage ‘difficult’ governors
