Matters arising

Headteachers and Governing Bodies


A practical guide to making the partnership work

Martin Pounce

Fourth edition

A good working relationship between the headteacher and the rest of the governing body is essential to the successful leadership of a school. This guide shows how both parties can develop that partnership so as to get the best for the school, avoid distractions and duplication of effort, and make working on or with a governing body more enjoyable and fulfilling. It is equally applicable to maintained schools and academies.

Drawing on the author's considerable experience as a governor and trainer, this book:

  • makes it clear where the different responsibilities lie
  • exposes the misconceptions that can undermine the relationship
  • provides guidance on good practice for both the headteacher and the governors
  • shows how governors can help the head establish a good work-life balance
  • explains how head and governors can work together on school improvement, including the quality of teaching
  • identifies the problems that can arise and points to solutions.
