Governors



Our governors are a dedicated group of people who volunteer their time to improve and support Woodcote Primary School; they are our ‘critical friends’ in helping us to develop further. As part of their role, the governors often visit the school during the school day. The visits often have a particular focus and we have a Governor Visits book situated in the reception area where you are able to read their comments.

THIS PAGE WILL BE FULLY UPDATED FOLLOWING OUR AUTUMN TERM GOVERNOR MEETING ON 15/10/2018

We currently have vacancies for co-opted governors, if this is something that would interest you, please contact the school for more information. – Thank you
