Link Governors provide support and challenge to leaders working within the school.

Link governors are appointed by the governing body to understand, oversee, monitor and report on specific aspects of the School Improvement Plan and priorities. Link governors enrich the whole governing body’s understanding of their particular area and contribute to informed decision making.

The key principles for link governors at Thornhill are to:

  • Focus on understanding issues related to their link area
  • Focus on supporting rather than supervising
  • Aim for a minmum of a termly link meeting
