Welcome from the Chair of Governors
Firstly, a warm welcome to Wyndham Park Nursery School of which I am truly honoured to be the newly elected Chair of Governors. May I also take this opportunity to extend my gratitude on behalf of everyone involved with Wyndham Park to Michelle Tasker, the departing Chair, for her commitment and efforts as chair over the last two years. The work that was undertaken during Michelle’s time as Chair, reflected by the maintaining of Ofsted “Outstanding” status, shall be continued as we work alongside the Head and staff with the same positive drive and determination to ensure that Wyndham Park Nursery School continues to be Outstanding, and continues to offer the best start possible for your children.
I feel it pertinent to offer a little introduction into what Governors offer, both in general but specifically to Wyndham Park Nursery School. New shift in emphasis from the Department of Education, Ofsted and the National Governor Association highlight both the importance and vast expectation from Governing bodies; and we at Wyndham Park take the role with the utmost pride and seriousness.
In a nutshell, the role of the Governors are, most noticeably, to strategically lead the School financially, monitor pupil and staff performance and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives. (These are laid out for you to see in the School Improvement Plan.) Perhaps most crucial, the governors aim to be a source of challenge to, and support, to the Head Teacher (to be a critical friend). I look forward to working with Laura and the staff to develop further, more specific governance strategies (which will also be published) to ensure that the output of the School is the very best it can be.
To finish, I aim to make the Governors approachable for parents and we will strive to be a presence that you are aware of in a positive light. You can email me on WPNSGovernor@wyndhampark.lincs.sch.uk if you have any questions or concerns and I will endeavour to answer you as accurately and efficiently as possible.
I look forward to both meeting you, and hearing from you.
