Crawford Craig, Governor
This book has plenty for everyone. There is a “Quick-start guide” for new governors which gives an excellent introduction to the role. New governors will also find the chapter on school visits particularly useful. Equally, experienced governors will find plenty of thought-provoking material. A highlight for me is the chapter on holding the head teacher and leadership team to account. It has an excellent list of the headings under which judgements need to be reported and suggestions for questions governors can ask. The chapter on Ofsted has a very useful “Top Ten Tips” for helping the school, and the chapter on appointing a new head is a “must read” for governors facing this task. I can warmly recommend this book to any governor, regardless of experience. If you buy this book I can guarantee you will use it!
