  • Liaise with the appropriate member(s) of staff
  • Visit the school with the purpose of gathering information concerning their area of responsibility and to increase their knowledge of the School
  • Regularly report to the Local Community Governance Committee, the Link Trustee or, whichever the LCGC deems most appropriate, on developments/Progress within their area of responsibility
  • Raise the profile of the area of responsibility when related matters are considered by the LGBC
  • Attend training as appropriate
  • Monitor the work of the school via action plans and evaluations and
  • Any items which individual governing bodies may wish to include
