Local Advisory Board
Welcome to Woodford Primary School's Local Governor's page. Here you will find all the information about us and what we do.
We report directly to the Trust Board of the Plym Academy Multi Academy Trust. Our main purpose is to support and improve the school through our involvement. We provide a supportive, active and critical voice to ensure that our school achieves its maximum potential, and every child has an opportunity to achieve theirs.
The Local advisory board of local governors works in close partnership with senior management and staff. Although each member brings their own insight and expertise to the challenges of school governance we are all committed to, and love working with, Woodford Primary School and the community.
Our local board of governors consists of
1 x local Staff Governor
6 x local Co-opted Governors
2 x local Parent Governors
1 x Associate Member
A normal term for a local governor is 4 years with Chair and Vice chairs being elected annually at the beginning of each the academic year.
The chair of the local advisory board governors is Mrs Debbie Johns and she can be contacted via the school office or by email at
From the start of 2015 academic year we have ceased the notion of committees and adopted a timetable of full governor meetings every 4 weeks where each governor can contribute to all areas of governance.
