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.

 

In order to make sure we do this effectively, we have three core responsibilities:

  • We need to ensure that the school has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • We need to hold the head teacher to account, while supporting and strengthening leadership
  • We need to oversee the financial performance of the school, making sure that money is well spent

 

These days, selecting new members of the governing board is very much about finding the right people with the right skills. We welcome governors from all backgrounds and walks of life and we believe that a diverse range of skills and experience makes for a more effective board of governors.

 

We meet once a term for our main meeting, which includes a termly strategy meeting too. If we have short-term projects to work on, we may form smaller working parties who get together to achieve a specific goal.

 

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.
