Welcome to the governors page on the Wren Park Website. There are twelve governors at Wren Park all of whom take an active role in the life of the school.
As governors we meet regularly to make decisions about school matters and to support the staff of the school in their work. The full Governing Board meet every half term, and we have separate committees concerned with Premises and health and safety, Finance, Personnel and Curriculum issues and these committees usually meet termly. Governors are members of at least one of these committees which meet regularly to examine issues relating to their special responsibility. Having considered all the options they are then able to make recommendations to governors at the next full meeting. All governors have a curriculum area of interest and keep up to date with the latest developments by liaison with the teachers who lead the subject area. Governors visit the school regularly and participate fully in school events.
All the governors are very approachable and are happy to speak to parents. Governors can be contacted in the first instance by communicating with the school or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
A governor is always present at open evenings and other events and can be approached in person.

The Governing Board is a team of volunteers, supporting the school, with the following roles:
The Governing Board consists of the following:
Ian Care - I am a professional engineer and feel that my commercial, business, and science experience can be helpful to the school and governors. I believe every school should be a good school adding value to those who learn at the school, and that this should be a fun and enjoyable experience for the pupils and staff. My employer is supportive of those who want to serve as a school governor, and provides training for this. I will endeavour to continue to do my best for the school.
John Hume - Spry My background is in healthcare but as a small business owner I have an insight into the challenges of staffing and finances. I have taken an active part in the Parents Association over the last 3 years and have 4 year’s experience of sitting on the organising committee of a local preschool. I am a keen supporter of our school and would like to take a proactive role to help Wren Park maintain its high standards and continue to thrive.
Lesley Wain - I have worked for Rolls-Royce since starting as a Graduate Engineer in 1997. I am now a Project manager within Engineering & Technology. Over the last 5 years I have shared many experiences and expectations with other Wren Park parents. Therefore, I use my experience (work and home) as a Parent Governor to help the school continue to improve and provide an excellent quality of care and education for children.
Helen Hagan – I was a Social Worker in Adult Care for 13 years and I now am self employed, providing interactive music sessions for residents in care homes. I am the Safeguarding governor on the Governing board.
I believe that schools should be a stimulating, enjoyable and fun environment for the children and all those who work in them, and we should all encourage our children to be curious about the world. Most importantly, we must be child centred in all the decisions that we make. I will do my very best to support Wren Park as a governor as it continues to provide a very high standard of care and education for our children.
