Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governing Body Section.

 

Our Governors are always welcomed in school, whether this is for formal meetings with staff and the GB or to enjoy the wide variety of events in school. Below are documents which evidence their attendance, involvement and the work that they carry out.

 

Copies of minutes from previous GB Meetings are available on request.

Our GB meets every half term to discuss key aspects of school development. Their job is to establish a strategic plan for the school and to work with the school leadership to ensure the best possible outcomes for our pupils. They need to know about everything that goes on in school and particularly if we are achieving value for money.Their ultimate aim is to improve achievement for all pupils - supporting and challenging our school leaders in the process. Note that all our governors have signed a register of percuniary interest that indicates they have no links to businesses, agencies or otherwise that could gain favour (financial or otherwise) from the decisions of the governing body.

 

 

Please view our current Governing Body at Waverley. Look below also to view some of our GB activities.

Jenna Wilkinson is an experienced school leader in her own right at Walbottle Campus. She has recently joined our GB. She works in SEND and has great experience with KS3 transition as well as policy and procedure in support of vulnerable pupils.

 

Mrs Leeming works alongside the GB but is also held to account for the way in which she runs the school.  Mr Garrod is our staff representative on the GB.

 


One of our aims is to publicise the work of the Governing Body in the coming year and canvas opinion upon what we do well and how our school can become even better.
