Our Governors

Woodlands Primary and Nursery School Governing Body is responsible for our school and has representatives from across the organization as well as Governors from a range of different professions. All Governors have completed a skills audit and we ensure that when new Governors are appointed they can bring additional skills and expertise to the Governing Body. In June 2015 we reconstituted the Governing Body in line with the new DfE regulations. There are now 9 Governors of which 1 is an LA Governor, 1 The Headteacher, 1 Parent Governors, 1 Staff Governor and 4 Co-opted Governors. (Currently 1 parent vacancy).

Governors are appointed for a four year period of office and are from a wide range of professions to bring expertise to the leadership and management of Woodlands Primary and Nursery School. The Governing Body is responsible for ensuring that Woodlands is well led and holds the Headteacher to account for all aspects of the school. They are closely involved in strategic planning and the future direction of the school with the Senior Leadership Team. Governors meetings this year will focus on Monitoring Standards of Achievement, Behaviour and Attendance, Monitoring the Quality of Teaching, Staffing and Staff Appraisal, Key Policies, Budget Monitoring and Budget planning, the impact of the Pupil Premium on pupil outcomes, the effectiveness of the New Curriculum 2014, Safeguarding and Woodlands in the Community. The external review of PPG Funding, evaluating the effectiveness of the School Development Plan to improve outcomes in mathematics, especially for the lowest attainers, SEND, disadvantaged and more able children.

The Full Governing Body meets at least 3 times per year, once per term.

The Chair of Governors is Mr Max Jones.
