    Abstract

    This project analysed the relationship between primary and secondary school governing and school performance and the way this relationship was influenced by the socio-economic setting. The findings of the research confirmed that school governing is complicated, demanding, and goes on largely un-noticed. Much of the work of lay governors is hidden from view and is all undertaken for no tangible reward. The 300,000 or so school governors in England make a significant contribution to their schools and to the education system as a whole.
