This has played on my mind. If all Governors know comes from the Headteacher and certain staff who follow a certain 'story' how do Governors ever know differently? Yes we are critical friends but in reality how many Governors actually have the knowledge, time and inclination to seriously question the Head and senior leaders? For most Governors, they could answer with embellished answers anyway. And if we don't know if a particular document exists how can we ever ask for it?! Any thoughts?
