Governors Board Information

A warm welcome from the Governing Board


Thank you for visiting us!  We are volunteers who are passionate about children and their educational needs and we have chosen Woodgate Primary School, for a number of wonderful reasons including being parents to some of the children in the school, wanting to support the highest quality learning and support educating your children, our primary function is to:


  1. Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and oversight of the performance management of staff
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent


We want to do the best we can to support children's learning, development and their environment.  We want to ensure the curriculum is rich and varied and as the chair of governors want to assure you that every child matters.  You may see board volunteers around the schools as some come into school to support children with activities.  We are very approachable so if you need to contact us please leave a letter/note with the secretary (just until we sort out an email address!).
