School Affair

Description

In this episode, a panel of governors discuss their legal responsibilities in relation to a series of events which take place in a hypothetical school.

After watching a series of reconstructions, the panel's job is to debate where the duties of governors lie. Keeping a close eye on the discussion is governor expert, Paul McGann, who provides advice and guidance.

This week's scenario revolves around an internal promotion and its consequences. The debate considers:

  • Recruitment procedures
  • The limits of the authority of the head
  • How close relationships between members of staff can affect harmony in schools

The programme is of value to school governors keen to gain further understanding of their role and how to act in the best interests of their school.
