Governors

“Governors have a clearer understanding of the strengths and areas for improvement of the school, and the role they play in this. Through visits they have more detailed knowledge of teaching, pupils’ progress and behaviour. They have played their part in securing overall improvements in the school.”
(Woodlands School Ofsted 2015)

Governors receive regular training and all are trained in safeguarding, as well as the designated governor. Governors have a good overview of the budget to make sure that the school has a balanced budget and that it is efficiently used.
