Governing Body


The Governing Body of Woodlawn School has a strong focus.  Its three core strategic functions are: 
1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

2. Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff 

3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school ensuring value for money and best practice

As part of the above our Governors share a firm commitment to improving the outcomes for the children and young people at Woodlawn. We establish policies that ensure compliance and that the school works in line with the agreed ethos and values. We support and challenge the Headteacher and staff to provide the very best for the pupils at Woodlawn School.

Please read the annual statement of governors below and find out a little more about governors from each of our profiles. Any governor may be contacted through the school office.
