It's funny but a session with a group of governors makes you realise what an enormously talented and powerful force they are... with a complex range of talents and abilities. Our challenge is how we support and develop the role of the governing bodies across Leeds to drive standards and outcomes, to challenge and support talented headteachers, to develop distributed leadership and to build a flexible, creative and passionately engaged workforce that can respond to the challenges we face. The strategic leadership role of the governing body of a school is a challenging and complex one... especially in a new Children's Services world where we are trying to connect together all the pieces of the complex jigsaw puzzle that makes for a brilliant learning place where every child can be happy, healthy, safe and successful.
