WOOLENWICK INFANT AND NURSERY SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY

 

The Governing Body includes representatives of Woolenwick staff, Woolenwick parents, the Local Authority and the local community.

Our role as Governors is to be ‘critical friends’ of the school. We aim to provide support and encouragement and to recognise and celebrate the school’s achievements, but also to challenge and question the school to ensure that the budget is being well managed and that areas for improvement continue to be identified and pursued.

Being a Governor at Woolenwick is a challenging but rewarding experience. It is challenging because standards of management at the school are very high, and because education policy is always changing: we need to be on our toes to keep up and to make a contribution. But it is immensely inspiring to see close up how the school functions and to observe at first hand the key to Woolenwick’s success – the time and energy dedicated to the school by the staff team.

If you would like to talk to a Governor about any issue to do with the school, please get in touch.  The school can provide you with contact details.
