The role of the Governing Board is to work in partnership with the Headteacher and the Great Learners Trust to agree the long-term objectives and priorities for the school. This is a strategic role. The Governing Board supports and challenges the leaders of the school to ensure the school achieves its objectives. Our overall aim is to provide the highest standard of education for all pupils.

 

Who is on the Governing Board?

The Governing Board is composed of:

  • Parent Governors
  • Staff Governors
  • Community and Co-opted Governors
  • Headteacher

 

The Governing Board consists of:

 

Chair of Governors: Sheila Pikulski

I am delighted to be a part of the Governing Board at Wooburn Green Primary School.  I am a retired Headteacher who enjoyed a long and happy career both as a class teacher and as a senior leader.  I loved my role as a Special and Additional Needs leader and wholeheartedly believe that ‘inclusion’ is at the heart of our journey towards providing an excellent educational experience.

My passion is for all children to receive a high quality education through which they are provided with a life-long love of learning, the life skills they need to become independent contributors to society and to have high aspirations for their future.

 

I believe Wooburn Green Primary School is the school where children will achieve all of this!

I was previously associated with the school and have returned to enthusiastically support the work of the Mrs. Moore, other senior leaders of the school and the wider Great Learners Trust.

 

Parent Governor- Matt Foster

I have been a Parent Governor since joining the Governing Board in 2012.  I am currently employed as Head of Year 7 at a Secondary School in Maidenhead. I believe that it was important for me to join our Board to support Wooburn Green Primary School and make use of my experience in education in order to help the school make progress on its school improvement journey.  I have 1 child who is currently at the school and another who has just left after enjoying 6 happy years here. When not working, I enjoy spending time with family and Fell running in the mountains of Wales.

 

Community Governor-Laurence Postgate

Having lived in Wooburn Green and next to the school for 10 years, I felt it was important to be able to support a local school at a strategic level and joined the school in 2019. I work as a freelance project manager in the IT and energy sector and previously studied Zoology at Kings College London.

 

Community Governor-Dave Price

I live in the local area and have been the senior pastor of The Community Church in Wooburn Green since 2017. I am married with three amazing children and as an active member of the community, I want to support Wooburn Green Primary School as a governor.

 

Headteacher- Jo Moore

Mrs Moore became the Headteacher of the school in September 2016. She has 12 years of experience in Education and has taught in schools in Hertfordshire, Inner London and Buckinghamshire- across both KS1 and KS2. Mrs Moore was a Deputy Headteacher for four years before becoming Headteacher at Wooburn Green Primary School. She is very passionate about ensuring all children receive a high quality education and are provided with a wide range of learning experiences and opportunities.
