The Governors of West Wimbledon Primary School act as a ‘critical friend’ to the School.
The Governing Body comprises people from all walks of life who bring a diverse range of skills, expertise and experience which leads and supports the School in making the correct choices about its development: but also holds it to account for its performance.
The Governing Body is a crucial part of the school community and works closely with the Headteacher and the leadership team, particularly in relation to setting the strategic priorities for the School. It scrutinises the School’s financial management, the safeguarding of the children, our relationships with our neighbours and the maintenance of our buildings and grounds, as well as overseeing what is taught, how it is taught and, most importantly, what children achieve. It is an integral part of the School: and who we are.
