GOVERNORS

ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITY OF LINK GOVERNORS


The Whitby High School has appointed some members of the governing body to be ‘link’ governors.

WHAT IS A LINK GOVERNOR?

A link governor is a governor appointed by the governing body to act as the link or liaison between the governing body and a specific subject, curriculum area or aspect of the work of the school. The development of a good working relationship based on mutual trust with all staff is essential if the link governor is to be effective in this role.

Link governors must understand that their role is as a source of support to the school and a source of information for the governing body.

WHERE SHOULD LINK GOVERNORS BE PLACED?

An integral part of many link governor roles is visiting the school to view lessons in particular subject/curriculum areas. These visits must be undertaken in accordance with the established Governor Visit policy/protocol of the governing body.
