Our Governing Body
Witley is supported by a full and active Governing body who meet regularly throughout the academic year. Our Governors are representatives from our local community, parents and school staff. They bring a range of interests, knowledge and skills to the role, and all have the common desire to help the school and its children succeed.
Our Governing body is made up of 13 governors, which include the headteacher, parent governors, staff governor, foundation governors and a local authority governor. Governors meet each term and more regularly in committees; we have 2 committees ‘Children and Learning’ and ‘Resources’. The parent governors are elected by parents, the staff governors are elected by the teachers and support staff, and the foundation governors are appointed by the Diocese.
The role of the Governing body is extremely important in ensuring school improvement and effectiveness. Governors help to provide the strategic direction of the school, working on the School Development Plan, ensuring accountability and effective use of budget. They play a vital role as a critical friend, supporting school leaders to ensure the best possible education for the children in our school.
