A Literacy Guide for School Governors: The Role of School Governors in Raising Literacy Standards.
McClelland, Neil; Stannard, John
The National Literacy Trust first produced this literacy guide for governors in 1998, when a free copy was sent to all Chairs of Governing Bodies of state schools in England. Among other things, the guide covers the role of governors and how to get started in a literacy policy. It includes illustrations of the different approaches taken by schools, questions that governors could ask, and a list of 48 diverse resources. The guide is divided into the following sections: Introduction; (1) Developing a School Literacy Policy; (2) The Literacy Governor; (3) Primary Schools and the National Literacy Strategy; (4) Other National Literacy Initiatives; (5) Literacy in Secondary Schools; (6) Partnership with Parents; (7) Working with the Community; and (8) Resources for Governors.
