Governance and Governors

‘… governance is more demanding and more multi-faceted than in days gone by – the result of a mixture of political, legislative, financial and social pressures’.
Nigel Richardson, Governance and Governors

John Catt is pleased to announce the upcoming publication of Governance and Governors, the eighth and final volume in the Leading Schools in the 21st Century series organised by The Headmasters’ & Headmistresses Conference.

The new book, co-sponsored by the Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools (AGBIS), draws on the experiences of Governors, Heads and Bursars and covers many of the challenges Governors face. The volume is edited by Dr Nigel Richardson, who has co-edited the other seven titles in the series, and Stuart Westley, General Secretary of AGBIS and a former Head.

Among the topics covered are legal responsibilities; health and safety; risk management; public benefit and charity legislation; child protection requirements; inspection; the role of the Chairman; committee structures; complaints and appeals; strategic planning; finding a new Head; and appraisal.

Other books in the series cover the roles of Heads; Senior Management Teams; Heads of Department; Newly Qualified Teachers; Pastoral Work; Public Relations, Marketing and Development; and Bursars. Full information on how to obtain the complete set will follow shortly.
