On behalf of the Governing Body, it is my pleasure to welcome you to what we hope will be a happy and educationally beneficial time at Woodland View Primary School.
The Governors take their responsibilities very seriously, and work closely with the Headteacher making decisions about how Woodland View Primary School can successfully meet its challenges, and we ask for your support in our endeavours. We, as School Governors, have legal duties, powers and responsibilities that we must exercise as a body. No governor can act individually and committees provide a mechanism for making these decisions.
The governing body have decided to have 6 meetings every year, one every half term. Each meeting I professionally clerked. These meeting ensure that each of the below headings are discussed and monitored over the course of the year.
- Pupils and Personnel
- Finance & General Purpose
- Strategic Development

The Governing Body are experienced and knowledgeable in various fields of expertise they are supportive of the school, it staff and pupils and carry out their duties with consideration. They visit the classrooms to increase their understanding of how children learn and each one is linked to a subject.
We believe that successful education is the result of a positive home/school partnership, and we assure you that at all times decisions made reflect our aim of trying to meet the needs of all our pupils.
We are all very proud of the achievements of our school and have included within this website a link to the Ofsted web page which shows the school's most recent Ofsted Inspection. I am sure that you will enjoy reading this great report.
