Link Governor Responsibilities


Governing Bodies have general responsibility for standards of education so they need to keep themselves informed about what and how things are happening in school. To do this effectively, responsibility for different areas is delegated to individual governors who then report back to committees or the full Governing Body.

Called Link Governors they visit the school and talk to the teachers(s) or other member of staff and get to know something of the policy that guides the subject. They act as a liaison between the Governing Body and the school.
