Welcome to governance - A handbook for new school governors is produced by the National Governors' Association. It aims to give a brief account of the latest roles and responsibilities of governors.
The guide takes the reader through a wide range of issues, including:
There is a foreword and welcome from the Secretary of State for Education, a
code of practice for governors, and a glossary to guide the new governor through unfamiliar education jargon and acronyms.
Each section aims to give enough information for a new governor to understand the issue, without overload. References to further information are provided so that the reader can find out more if, and when, they need to.
The guide is updated and re-issued regularly to take account of changes to legislation.
