AWS Governing Body

Woodlands governors play an important role in trying to ensure that every student in the school gets the best possible education.  They are required by Law to focus on three core strategic functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, plus the performance management of staff;
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Governors try to get to know the school through reports and data as well as by coming into school and meeting staff especially. If you have any questions regarding the work of the Governing Body please contact the clerk, Mrs J. Bailey on 01332 551921 or email
