Statement from the Chair of Governors
As Chair of Governors I’d like to welcome you to the Governors area of the school website. This is an area where all stakeholders can find out about the work of the Governors and the important role we play in guiding the progress and development of the school. Despite the fantastic achievement of the OFSTED “Outstanding” rating awarded to Wood Street Infant School in March 2015, the Governors share a clear objective that we will strive for continuous improvement across all aspects of the schools activities.

We are not resting on our laurels as we aim to make Wood Street an even better place for delivering a superb experience for all our children. Our aim, like yours, is to have the best for our children. We want them to be happy, confident individuals who are well educated and have natural curiosity, creativity and generosity. We want them to enjoy learning and feel valued in a safe, positive environment.

We thought it was important to share more about what the Governing Body is doing and how it helps shape the future of the school, and hence we have recently expanded this area of the school website to enable you to get a deeper insight in to what we do. I would encourage all parents and other interested members of the local community to take an interest and maybe even get involved by nominating yourself as a parent or community governor (yes we have some vacancies!). Please contact me or the Head to find out more.
