Useful information, advice and discussion especially for governors. Ivan Godfrey, from Two Moors Primary in Devon, Jackie Ball from Gay Elms Primary in Bristol and Richard Bevan from Bedminster Down Secondary are three very different chairs of governors. They reflect on their role, their relationship with their headteacher and how they lead, work with and encourage the rest of the board. The programme also explores the role of specialist training in helping existing and potential chairs.
