A Message from our Chair of Governors.

It was a real honour to be appointed as Chair of Governors for Woodland View in September 2023. I was appointed to the Governing Body in May 2023 as a Trust Governor through The Transform Trust. It has been a real pleasure to get to know the staff and children here at Woodland View. The school has the wellbeing and development of children at its heart and works very hard to be inclusive for all. The school’s ethos of nurturing children so that they can exceed their potential as part of a family is evident as soon as you walk through the doors.

Although new to Woodland View, I have been a Governor with a number of schools in Nottinghamshire for many years. My professional background is in Human Resources, but in the last 5 years or so I have worked in the field of School Governance for both the Local Authority and for the Transform Trust. I enjoy working with the school’s Governing Body who invest a huge amount of their own time as volunteers to support the school in being the best they can be for our children.

I have two children myself (all grown up now!) and I understand just how important having a fantastic school in your community is. In my spare time, I enjoy watching sport, particularly ice-hockey and rugby, as well as taking long walks in the woods with my dogs.

You are welcome to visit Woodland View to see the amazing things our pupils get up to and please do come and speak to me if you see me in school!
