After watching a series of reconstructions, their job is to debate just where the duties of the school governors lie. Keeping a close eye on the discussion is governance expert, Paul McGann, who provides advice and guidance on dealing with the issues along the way.

The programme will be of value to school governors keen on understanding more about their role and how to act in the best interests of their school.

This week:

  • The debate covers suitable control and restraint of pupils, after a child is injured when a teacher steps in to stop a fight
  • The debate develops when the parents of the child complains to the school and our panel attempt to address their concerns
  • Finally the debate raises the issue of how school governors can influence the culture of a school in order to avoid such problems arising in the first place
