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! --Crawford Craig, Governor
Tim`s book is a fantastic resource whether you are about to become a governor or have been involved in school governance for many years. It details what you want to know, what you should know and what you thought you knew but it turns out you didn`t until now. The chapter introductions allow you to quickly find what you`re looking for, the check boxes at the end of the chapters give you something tangible to take away and work with and, because of the amount of work put into preparing the book, it feels like you`re getting the advice of many educationalists and leaders in one place. You`ll refer to this book for years but the first step will be reading it cover to cover. --Giles Mooney Education Adviser
This excellent book will support all governors to review their practices and improve their performance. It will demystify the jargon for new governors and enable governing bodies to strengthen their important role in challenging and supporting the leadership of the school. It provides excellent advice on preparing for important events in the life of any school such as appointing a new head teacher and Ofsted inspections. --Anne Nelson, Early Years consultant, formerly Chief Executive of Early Education

This is an excellent, up-to-date guide to the responsibilities of governors. Contains useful features such as lists of acronyms. Particularly helpful for new governors, though everyone could learn from it.

An excellent primer for all new school governors, and existing governors alike, who need to know how the changes in governors responsibility recently will affect them. Make no mistake, poorly performing governing bodies will bring down an otherwise outstanding school, so this is well worth a read.

Excellent and easily read and to use as a reference book. Always difficult to get down to earth explainations from heavy beaurocratic rhetoric, particularly when the beaurocrats appear to have lost the plot!
