PH5-2015-16 Practical Headship module: Strategic Leadership
Wed 18 May 2016, 13:00 – 16:00 BST
The critical importance of the relationship between the Chair of
Governors and Headteacher.
The relationship between the Head and the Governing Body can be a challenging one;
sometimes working well but at other times characterised by disengagement,
frustration, or an attempt to cynically “manage” governor colleagues. The
session will explore how to build a strong relationship between the Chair and
Head, why this is so important and some of the necessary ingredients of this. Hopefully
the difference between Strategic and Operational will be fully explored!

It has developed outstanding Post 16 provision, been designated as the lead school in the Pathfinder Teaching School Alliance and carried out work as a National Support School. Andrew continues to achieve excellent results at GCSE and A Level as a teacher of History and prioritises teaching and learning of the highest quality.
John Hattam, Chair of Governing Body
John chairs the Governing Body at Archbishop Holgate’s School and is Local Leader of Governance in York. He has also worked for both North Yorkshire and York as an “additional” Local Authority Governor in a number of schools in recent years.
