Woodlea Primary School


At Woodlea, the Governors, Headteacher and Staff work to constantly improve the quality of the education we provide to our children.

Our Governors are fundamental to the success of our school and work at a strategic level with the Headteacher and staff in managing budgets and resources, considering and applying Government legislation, hiring staff and reviewing curriculum and teaching. Governors are supported by Hampshire County Council with extensive training and advice services.

There are great benefits to Woodlea Primary School in having a diverse and broadly based Governing Body, but we also hope that Governors enjoy their role at the school and relish the chance to make a difference for local children.

If you would like to apply to become one of our Governors, please contact the Admin Officer on adminoffice@woodlea.hants.sch.uk
