Governors

The Local Governing Body is made up of representatives from parents, staff (teaching and non-teaching), and the local community. The Local Governing Body meets once per school term (6 times per year). Regulations define the three key roles of the Governing Body as:

  • Setting the strategic direction
  • Securing accountability
  • Monitoring, evaluating, supporting and challenging

This means that the Local Governing Body fulfils the role of a ‘critical friend’, with the overriding aim of improving the quality of education and standards of achievement at Woodlea Primary School. We are involved with development planning, policy making, monitoring and evaluating performance, setting realistic but challenging targets for pupil performance and ensuring accountability.
