Governors

At Westfield Primary we have an enthusiastic and engaged Governing Body all of whom take a lively interest in the daily workings of the school. As a “critical friend “ our Governors are invaluable to the school and bring their expertise in many different fields

The Governing Body members are appointed for a term of 4 years. The full governing body meets once a term, these are closed meetings. The role of the Governing Body is a strategic one, considering and approving

* aims and objectives for the school

* policies for achieving those aims and objectives

* School Improvement targets for achieving those aims and objectives

* the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives through strategic evaluation

The Governing Body is a source of challenge and support to the Headteacher

Some of the Governors’ work is done through the following sub-committees:

The Children & Learning committee which monitors progress of all pupils’ achievement including the effectiveness of intervention groups and the creative curriculum programme.

The Resources committee which oversees the school budget and discusses income and spending matters. It also has responsibility for the health and safety of the school through regular premises inspections and management of the maintenance programme.

Chair of Governors: Mr. Anthony Spence, Westfield Primary School, Bonsey Lane, Westfield, Woking GU22 9PR.
