Meet The Governors

The Governing Body

The Governing Body of Waddesdon Village Primary School is formed of people from all walks of life - from parents of children in the School, to members of the local community who want to give something to the School.

All give their time, free of charge, endeavouring to ensure that your child’s education is the best it can be.

The Governing Body carries out its responsibilities by setting targets, challenging the way things are done and by adopting and checking that relevant policies are being implemented.

Regular meetings take place together with the Headteacher.

The full Governing Body meets three times a year, but because the running of a school is a complex issue, the Governing Body is split up into two sub-committees. These are Finance and Personnel and Curriculum.

Structure of the Full Governing Body

Full Governing Body comprised of 14 governors: 2 Staff including Headteacher; 1 LA; 3 parents; 4 Co-opted; 4 Associate

Committees: Finance and Personnel; Curriculum.

 

SARAH JAMES has been a parent governor for the last 3 years and, in November 2018, was elected as the Chair of Governors. Her children have been attending Waddesdon Village Primary School since 2012, and her youngest child will leave in 4 years’ time.

She is extremely happy with the way her children’s education has progressed through the school and being a governor has helped her to understand the education system in more detail and fully appreciate the challenges that all schools face in the current climate.

Her objective is that, as a governing body, supporting and challenging the school to ensure that the best outcome is achieved for all students both academically, socially and emotionally, is key.

Sarah works fulltime in a commercial banking role providing support to clients to maintain and grow their business’, and has previously led large retail banking teams across Herts, Beds & Bucks.
