Westende Junior School Governing Body



Role of the Governing Body

All schools are managed by a Governing Body, which works closely with the headteacher and the senior leadership team, to run the school in line with Department for Education and Local Authority guidelines.  

The Westende Junior School Governing Body consists of 10 governors representing parents, teaching and non-teaching staff, the local authority and the wider community.

It takes a strategic role in the running of Westende Junior School and helps directs the school’s aims and objectives, setting its policies and putting in place targets to achieve whole-school improvement.  

The Governing Body acts as a ‘critical friend’ to the Headteacher by providing challenge, advice and support. 

The governors are all volunteers who give their time and expertise free of charge to ensure that the school is run well, within budget and puts the needs and well-being of pupils and staff at the forefront.  



You can contact any member of the Governing Body via the Clerk, by emailing clerkgovernors@westende.wokingham.sch.uk or by the school office on 0118 978 6682.
