A link governor is a member of the governing board that is appointed to oversee a specific aspect of the work of the school.

What does the role of link governor involve?

The role of link governor will vary according to the nature of the appointment. However, in general a link governor role would involve the following specific tasks:

  • Keeping up to date with the area of interest, and attending relevant training
  • Making focused visits to the school
  • Acting as a link between a relevant staff member and the governing body, by meeting regularly to discuss the area of interest
  • Monitoring the implementation of relevant policies, and discussing their impact with the staff member
  • Regularly reporting to the governing body, and making recommendations where appropriate

Link governor appointment

There is no statutory obligation for governing boards to appoint link governors. Governing boards are free to choose how they structure their governance arrangements, and can therefore decide which, if any, roles are delegated to individuals.

Governing boards should collectively assign link governor roles, with the agreement of the individual taking the role. Link governor positions should then be reviewed annually.

Why do we have link Governors?

The Department for Education recommends that governing boards appoint an individual governor or committee to have oversight of governor training, and another for special educational needs (SEN) provision in the school.

Other link governor positions should be chosen in line with the school’s improvement priorities, and in partnership with senior and middle managers. Governing bodies may also choose to appoint a link governor for a particular subject area, for example, or for safeguarding.
