At the Full Governing Body meeting in October, the governors and head teacher expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the tremendous job that Sian Holmes has done for the school as Chair of Governors for the past four years. Sian has decided to hand over the reigns of Chairperson having dedicated many hours, both in front and behind the scenes towards monitoring and the continuous improvement of the day to day teaching and learning, sound business management and the well-being of children and staff of our school. We’re all very grateful Sian, thank you.
At the same meeting in October, Andy Wilcock was elected as the new Chair of Governors.
'The role of Governors is to make sure that objectives are met and that planning for the future is both aspirational and realistic. We are here to support and encourage the Head Teacher, Senior Leadership Team and teaching staff as a ‘critical friend’ to maintain our commitment to achieving the highest standards of education. I believe that Walkley School makes a uniquely, positive contribution to our wider community.' (Andy Wilcock)
We look forward to continuing our work over the years to come.
