Governors

Wingfield Primary School Governing Body

Governors are a group of volunteers drawn from the community who have a range of skills, expertise and professional interests. 

Governors fulfil their responsibilities by:

  • Supporting the school and its ambition by working strategically to develop and implement vision and ethos
  • Ensuring that the children are receiving the best education and achieve the best outcomes by monitoring the quality of teaching and standards across the school
  • Setting a budget and making sure that financial resources made available to the school are used effectively
  • Accounting to all stakeholders for the school’s performance and for the decisions they make.

The full governing body meets once a term.  Responsibilities are delegated to committees within the governing body.  There are three committees that meet regularly – The Executive Committee, The Learning and Achievement Committee and The Resources Committee (Finance, Personnel and Premises). They also support the school by visiting regularly and participating in events.

This is a really exciting time in the development of Wingfield.  It is a rapidly improving school with a new enthusiastic and ambitious Senior Leadership and a dedicated staff.  The school is expanding to three forms of entry and will be moving into a brand new building by 2016.

As governors, we are delighted to be part of the new journey Wingfield is beginning.  It is exciting, innovative and ambitious.  Wingfield is a school where ‘Learning is without Limits’.
