The Woodlands Academy is a Special School that educates children aged 4 -16 years with a wide range of needs. This includes moderate or severe learning difficulties, speech and language difficulties and autism.

The Academy Governing Board is committed to ensuring high standards of achievement for all children and young people at the school and works effectively with a school leadership and staff team who are highly skilled, and who have high expectations for pupil learning, development and behaviour.  We care passionately about helping our pupils become responsible citizens who can make a positive contribution to the community.

The Academy is seeking to recruit new School Governors to the board who have a passion and interest in Special Education, and who wish to make a positive contribution to the local community and the lives of children, young people and their families.

Governors are expected to have inquiring minds, the ability to contribute to debate and planning and the confidence to ask the questions that need to be asked.  Governors establish with the Headteacher, aims for the school through the development plan with the setting of challenging but achievable targets.  The board will review management information to accurately assess progress and determine appropriate action.

Governors are supported in their roles through an induction process together with other relevant training.  There are also opportunities to get to know the school through occasional visits.

Being a school governor can bring many personal and professional rewards, if you feel you may be interested in joining us please contact Michelle Hockham (Headteacher) at the school for an informal discussion or to arrange a visit.
