Margaret Wix Primary School

Excellence, Creativity, Individuality!

Our Governing Board


The Governing Body at our school is made up of volunteers who collectively act as a "Critical Friend" to the Head Teacher and the school's teaching staff. 


The Governors are representative of the parents and local school community. 


They influence the character, policies and general administration of the school. 


There are two committees within the Governing Body, namely :

  1. Teaching & Learning Committee (T & L) - deals with the curriculum, teaching and learning.
  2.  Resources Committee - deals with finance, premises, pay and personnel issues.


The full Governing Body meets twice a term to deliberate over all aspects of school life. 


In addition, each individual committee meets at least once a term to execute the responsibilities of the Governing Body.

The School Development Plan (SDP) is a strategic plan for improvement. It should bring together, in a clear and simple way, the school priorities, the main measures it will take to raise standards, the resources dedicated to these, and the key outcomes and targets it intends to achieve.


At Margaret Wix Primary School, we work collaboratively with Senior Leaders, Governors, teachers and pupils to determine what our key priorities are for the coming academic year.  We follow a clear process to determine what areas of the school need to be further developed as well as identifying areas of strength within the school.  By consulting all the key stakeholders within the school, the document is one that we all identify with and acts as a common goal that we are all striving to achieve.


The School Development Plan is not a fixed document rather it is one that is flexible and adapts based on the needs of the school.  The SDP is reviewed by senior leaders on a regular basis and updates are provide to staff to ensure that we are all aware of any outstanding actions.
