Message from the Governors

Dear Parents,

 

You already know that you are an essential part of the Wood Street school community but there are other partnerships that are important in your child's education.

 

One that you may not be aware of is the partnership between the school governors and the head teacher. 

 

Governors are volunteers who work with the head teacher to agree the school development plan, the budget to support it, monitor progress and make the necessary strategic management decisions so that the school can provide the best possible education.  

 

Parents are essential in this role because you bring a viewpoint that the rest of the governors are unable to provide.  As a parent you have the core skills that are needed and full training is provided for all the other things.  

 

In the new term, parents will be formally invited to offer themselves up as school governors.   Please consider making that important contribution.
