Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' page

 

 

What do Governors do? 
 

The role of School Governors is to set strategic direction, to hold school leaders to account for improving performance and to make sure money is well spent and resources meet the needs of the school. We provide challenge and support to the Head Teacher, drawing on our own knowledge and experience.  
The Full Governing Body at Woodlands meets once a term and oversees the strategic development of the school alongside the Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team. The governors visit the school regularly as part of their monitoring role. We make decisions together on matters such as performance, targets, school policies and school development plan. We ask searching questions and act as a critical friend to the school.
The Chair of Governors is Fiona Martland who can be contacted via the School (fiomar@tinyworld.co.uk)
There are two main Committees:  Every Child is Important Committee  ensures that the needs of individual pupils are met both in terms of their academic and personal development.  Resources Committee ensures that all available resources are utilised to meet the individual needs of the pupils and are value for money.     
The Full Governors’ meetings are closed, but anyone can apply to the Chair of Governors to attend as an observer.
