Story Wood School Sowing the seeds of success

Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section!

The Governors are representatives of the local council; the parents, the staff and the local community. They take a keen and active interest in the running of the school and, in conjunction with the staff, try to foster a good relationship with the community.

 

All parents are eligible for election to the Governing Body as Parent Governors. This occurs either at the end of a term of office or when an existing member leaves.

 

The Governors meet at least twice a term and are elected for four years from the time of their election.

Jayne is a new governor and has just joined us at Story Wood.  As a governor , she goes to meetings with Mrs Jones and really enjoys coming into school.  Her favourite colour is purple and she really likes chocolate and a cup of tea.  Jayne also likes reading the Harry Potter books and watching Coronation Street on the television.  In her spare time, she enjoys going to the park, watching films at the cinema, visiting museums and knitting.  Jayne has three children of her own, aged 7, 10 and 13 so they keep her very busy.  She also works hard for the governors at two other schools, typing up the minutes so that people know what happened at the meetings.  Jayne is the class governor for Reception and we really enjoyed meeting her and asking her lots of questions!

Ange has recently joined the Governing Body at Story Wood and has now been a governor for a few months.  She is learning all about being a governor and enjoys meeting with the other governors to talk about all the wonderful things that are happening in our school.  She also likes helping the teachers to make our school a fantastic place to come to every day.

 

Ange's favourite colour is blue and her birthday is in March.  She likes to drink peppermint tea and eat lots of healthy vegetables every day.  Her favourite treat is chocolate Freddo!  In her spare time, she likes to read books, go swimming, to the gym or go for walks in the park. Her favourite book is called 'Benjie' and is about a squirrel who lost his tail.  She has had this book since she was in reception class herself and still loves to read it.

 

Ange is a primary school teacher and also helps other teachers to learn about teaching brilliant PE lessons.  She has two children who are quite grown up now!  Her daughter Hannah is going to be a teacher in September and her son, Matthew is just about to go to university.
