Governing Body Changes 2023-24

We would like to thank our retiring Chair of Governors, Tazleem Kauser, who has served on our Governing Board for many years. Thank you for making a difference to our Woodfield families we wish her the very best for the future. 


We have two new prospective Governors this year who will hopefully be joining us and would like to welcome Mrs Farah Hussain and Mr Jonathon Watson. 


At Woodfield our Governing Body is committed to training to ensure that they have the ability to challenge and support the Headteacher and School to be the best they can be. Future training will focus on finance, curriculum and safeguarding.


Huge thanks to Mr Khalid who remained on the Governing Body to recruit for a new Headteacher for September. Congratulations on your new job. We wish you every success for the future I know we will continue to see you in school when you bring your daughter to Nursery.
