Building Positive Relationships Between Board and Management
Key to any school’s success is a clearly understood and constructive relationship between the Board of Governors and the School’s Management. Failure to achieve a positive working relationship between these two parties leads to lack of trust, breakdown in communication, weakened alignment to governance principles and mission, insecurity amongst staff and, ultimately, reduced levels of performance.
This document has been prepared with two objectives:
To provide a framework to ensure that the basic foundation blocks are in place to support collaboration between the Board of Governors and the school’s Head with the aim of building positive relationships and supporting optimal performance;
To support the Head of School and members of the Board of Governors in dealing effectively with challenges or blockages that may arise between the two parties over the course of time. These blockages may be as a result of performance-related matters or a breakdown in the relationship.
