Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section

Our Governing Body actively contributes its skills and expertise to provide strong strategic leadership to support and challenge the School in equal measure. Although this is a voluntary role, Governors have a vital role in ensuring the promotion of high standards of performance and ensuring that resources are well used.

 

We have two principal sub-committees: Finance and Resources and Learning and Pupil Progress. The responsibilities of the Finance and Resources Committee include, but are not limited to: Finance, Performance Related pay, Human Resources, Health and Safety, the School Buildings and site, Admissions, the Environment for Learning, Safeguarding. The responsibilities of the Learning and Pupil Progress Committee include, but are not limited to: Tracking and Monitoring of School Data, the Curriculum, Pupil Progress, the Quality of Teaching, Safeguarding, SEND, maintaining our Distinctive Christian Ethos. Both committees are involved with the reviewing and adopting of policies

 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories  and terms of appointment for each Governor.

Governors' Strategic Plan

Governor Communications

Governors report regularly to parents either by way of newsletters or presentations at parent consultations.  Please see below for recent examples.

Annual Parent Questionnaire

Annually the parents are asked to complete a questionnaire that reflects the Ofsted standards.  The responses are then analysed and presented to the parents by the Governors.  Please see below for the most recent questionnaire results.

Policies

Annual Governors' Afternoon

*Next Governor's afternoon - 8th July 2022.*

 

We have been waylaid by Covid several times but we are very much looking forward to our next Governor's afternoon on 8th July 2022. It will coincide with our first Sports Day since 2019, which will be followed by an open classroom session for the children to have an opportunity to share their books and work with parents and carers. Governors will be present in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and we are greatly looking forward to our afternoon and a report will shortly follow.

How to contact the Governors

The Governors can be contacted directly using the email address chair@woolmergreen.herts.sch.uk
