Link Governors

Governors have a responsibility to monitor and evaluate the progress of their school and contribute to the school self evaluation process. This can be done through a variety of methods including reports from the Executive Headteacher and senior staff, analysis of statistical data and through first hand observation.

 Link Governors

Governing bodies have a general responsibility for standards of education in their schools. This means that they need to keep themselves informed about what and how things are happening in school. One way of handling this is to delegate the responsibility for specific areas to different individual link governors and expect them to report back to the governing body or a committee. Link governors do not have to know all about the subjects they take on. In fact, it can be an advantage not to know; it means the governor can ask important basic questions. Areas of focus may include Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Inclusion, Child Protection, Safeguarding, Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 or ICT. Link governor positions are agreed at a full governing body meeting.

What advantage is there in having Link Governors?

  • It helps individual governors to get to know one area of the school very well.
  • Reports from link governors enable the governing body to learn more about the school which supports strategic planning.
  • It is encouraging to teachers to know that governors are interested in these subjects.
  • It can help maximise the effectiveness of the governing body and to enrich discussions about the school's performance.
  • It can partly fulfil the governing body's requirement to monitor progress.
