Our Governors

Wellfield Methodist & Anglican Church School GOVERNORS


The Governing Body of Wellfield School meets three times a term - once each for Standards and Effectiveness (SEC) and Resources Committees and once as the Full Governing Body. There are also various smaller and sub-committees that meet regularly and these meeting are not included in the attendance figures.  It is  responsible for setting the strategic framework of the school and monitoring its implementation. It acts as a 'critical friend' by holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils. The Governing Body also oversees the finances of the school; making sure money is well spent. 

Chair of the Governing Body

On Friday 3rd March our Governors visited school to have a look at all of our initiatives to promote and improve reading in school. They were also thinking about 'Are our children happy and safe in school?'

They all agreed that they had a fabulous day and saw lots of reading initiatives. The Governors were impressed by the ability of the children to articulate their ideas and discuss concepts. In terms of reading they saw:


  • A lovely busy library (although a bit noisy with the hall next door)
  • Class novels being read
  • Every child in KS2 with a reading book on their table
  • Books outside in the Year R and 1 play areas (Reading den/shed)
  • Guided reading
  • Book fair
  • Exciting and inviting reading corners
  • Comprehension work
  • Teaching Assistants supporting children's reading
  • Variety of reading materials including comics and newspapers
  • Extreme reading display
  • Interventions such as IDL cloud
  • Espresso ( On-line Reading / News articles)
  • Displays in classrooms and HUGE variety of vocabulary
  • Children covered in words for World book Day


In the afternoon the Governors chatted to children from The School Council about their ideas in relation to reading and how they felt about happiness and safety in school. They did this  whilst eating a cream tea of scones, jam & cream; all baked by the School Council.


A very successful day - Thankyou our lovely Governors !
