West Moors School Governors

A warm welcome from the Governors at West Moors Middle School.

Our governing body is made up volunteers from the Local Authority, parents, school staff and the local community. We are very fortunate to have a wide cross section of skills and experience that we bring together for the benefit of the school.
Our role is strategic, working in close partnership with Dr Craddock and staff to create and realise the vision for our school and promote continuous improvement in the school’s performance. We support the leadership team to formulate an improvement plan, setting challenging but achievable targets and interpreting information to assess progress and to monitor appropriate action.

Linked to our improvement role, the Governing body is there to act as a critical friend providing a balance between supporting and challenging the performance of both the Headteacher and the school.
As governors, we also ensure that:

• Local and national government legislation and targets are met
• Policies are monitored and followed
• The school budget is spent wisely
• The curriculum that meets the needs of all our children
And, most importantly, that our children and staff are all safe.
This is a challenging but most rewarding role.

Should you require any further information about the work of the Governing Body, wish to provide feedback or are interested in becoming a Governor should a vacancy arise then please contact us Robin Wilcox, Clerk to the Governing Body via
