This episode considers what outstanding governance looks like in the primary school, how to be a great governor, and how school leaders and governors can work together effectively.

We ask how headteachers can foster strong, professional relationships with governors, and vice-versa.

We advise new headteachers how they might begin to build working relationships with governors, including questions to ask during your first meeting, and we advise governors how to build relationships with new heads.

We consider governor workload, how heads can handle 'difficult' governors, what we can do when the relationship breaks down, and what lessons Covid has taught us.
