Reviews

See Around Diocesan Newspaper

Belinda Copson, Schools Support Officer (Governance) for St Albans Diocese has read a review copy. She says:“There is a good balance between addressing Christian vision and mission, and governance responsibilities and skills; and the book makes good connections between context and practice. Lots of case studies, action points, tips, ideas for personal reflection and so forth, in a very accessible format. I think any governor in a church school would find this a useful specialist resource to use alongside more generic publications.”

The Door Diocesan Newspaper

Whatever your level of experience as a church school governor (or if you are simply thinking about the role), Alexandra Green's practical and stimulating book will have something for you. Written from a Christian perspective it is intended for anyone who is governor in a church school - on the sensible grounds that even if a governor has no religious affiliation it will be appropriate for them to think about and engage with the Christian faith which forms the cornerstone on which the school is founded and run.

The Wey Diocesan Newspaper
