Woodhall School Governing Body
The Governor’s main role is to support the Headteacher and the staff –by helping them to set and reach targets and to strive for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life.
Categories of Governors
The Headteacher is automatically a Governor whilst he/she remains in the post.
Staff Governors are elected by the staff body and represent their views.
Parent Governors are elected by the parent body and represent their views.
Co-opted Governors (previously known as Community Governors) are appointed by the Governing Body. They are usually people who bring a particular skill set or expertise to add to the Governing Body and may be drawn from local businesses, the local community, charities, community groups, former parents, etc.
Associate Members may be appointed by the Governing Body to add their expertise for e.g. a specific building project.
Becoming a Governor:
Vacancies for Staff Governors and Parent Governors are notified to staff or parents, with a deadline for nominations.
For Parent Governors, notification would be via the School Newsletter.
For Co-opted Governors, we would contact local businesses, charities, etc. and request nominations through the School Newsletter
