Woodside
Primary Academy

Full Governing Body

Local governance

Woodside is proud to be able to maintain a very committed Local Governing Body (LGB).  Its primary responsibility is holding the school and its leaders to account for the outcomes of all pupils.

Our team of local Governors consists of:

Trust Governors

Jessica Laryea (Chair of Governors) - Contact me at chairofgov@woodside.waltham.sch.uk 

Parent Governors

Kate Burley
Yasmin Kiani 

Staff Governors

Shane Tewes (Head Teacher)
Sasha DaCosta
Sarah Jones

Co-opted Governors

Thomas Wayling

At present our governing body has no conflicting business or financial interests to declare.

We hold three committee meetings per term.  The three committees are directly responsible for the four areas of the Ofsted schedule.  The LGB is extremely proud of our Ofsted Outstanding grade but is highly aware that we must continue to strive to enhance the learning experiences of our pupils.  

The Local Governing Body understands the need for a robust strategy in order to ensure the best support for pupils, while also preparing them for their next stage of education.
