The School Standards Committee
The School Standards Committee is responsible for the performance and standards at Woodloes Primary School. The views of the Head Teacher, all other staff (teaching and non-teaching), parents and other stakeholders and members of the local community are all represented on the SSC by having representation at the meetings.
The SSC has powers delegated by the Directors of the Community Academies Trust and reports to them on a half termly basis.
School governors commit to giving time and energy to the role. Each governor contributes to the work of the SSC and shares the load. Governors are asked to take part in regular meetings, read papers and find out about the issues being discussed.
The SSC works closely with its School Leadership Team with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. It fulfils its obligations by establishing the strategic framework by:
· Setting aims and objectives for the school.
· Adopting policies for achieving those aims and objectives.
· Setting targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
Our SSC has a good mix of both experienced and relatively new members representing staff, parents, the CAT and the wider community. The governors on the SSC are:
Mr Andy Mitchell
Mrs Louisa Farino
Chair of Governors/ Safeguarding Governor
Louisa owns and runs an e-learning business specialising in safeguarding and duty of care for the education, third and commercial sectors. She has worked as a senior manager for almost 30 years, and lives in Leamington Spa with her family and dog, Teddy. In her spare time, she works for Samaritans as a listening volunteer and trainer.
Mr Mick Potter
Vice Chair/ Community Governor / Training
Sue has been a governor at Woodloes Primary School since 2009 when the infant and junior school amalgamated to become the primary school. This is when her twin sons joined the reception year; she was initially a parent governor but has been a community governor for just over one year. Sue works analysing data and providing research support. In her spare time she enjoys running (especially parkrun) and watching whatever sport her children participate in.
