Governors

Welcome to Woodhill Primary, we are really proud of our school. As a Governing Body, we are a strong and active cross section of people, with the objectives of providing a strategic view, ensuring accountability, and acting as a critical friend, through support and advice. 
 
By providing an exciting curriculum within a caring and secure environment, we aim to ensure that each child can reach his or her full potential in every aspect of their development at Woodhill.

Sam C Samantha Curtis Chair and Community Governor  - Child Protection Governor

I have been a Governor at Woodhill for five years now and became the Chair of Governors in 2012.

I became a Governor because I was interested in seeing how a school was run behind the scenes.  I quickly realised it wasn't as simple as it would appear.  It has given me a new found respect for the teaching profession.

I thoroughly enjoy my role being in school and seeing the children develop.

Over the years I have seen many positive changes and look forward to being part of many more.

James GOV James Ryan Staff Governor 

I have been Premises Manager at Woodhill Primary School for 25 Years and it is a job I love and enjoy.

I have three sons and a daughter who have all attended Woodhill, my youngest is currently in year 2.  The school has been an inspiration to my daughter who is currently in her second year of teacher training.

Over the years I have witnessed how Woodhill has grown from strength to strength.

I started as a Parent Governor 13 Years ago and am now a Staff Governor.  Being a Governor has given me a complete understanding of how the school is run and managed.

Ed Nedjari Vice Chair and Local Authority Governor 

I am Chair of the Resources Committee, and Vice-Chair of the overall governing body here at Woodhill and I have been a governor for just under three years, as well as being a trustee on the Inspire Partnership Board.  I am passionate and energetic about empowering the young people in our communities and supporting them to realise their potential.  I have lived in South Wast London all my life and have two teenage sons who also go to school in the Borough of Greenwich, and in keeping with my community action theme, I have coached youth football at various levels within the borough.  Employment wise I have spent the last decade working in the Third Sector within Higher Education.  I am currently Director of Operations and Commercial Development at Goldsmiths Student Union in New Cross. Prior to that, I spent nine years at King's College London Students Union, as Head of Community Engagement and Opportunities.  Before my journey into the third sector, I worked in the public and private sector, operating leisure facilities across Lewisham and Southwark.

Ed Britton Ed Britton Local Authority Governor

I have lived in South East London all my working life, have enjoyed the great sense of community here and am pleased, by being a governor at Woodhill, to have the opportunity  to be able to give something back, especially in the area of education. It is so important. Great education has the power to transform lives for the better.

I have returned to being a Greenwich school governor after a break of a couple of years, and am delighted to be associated with Woodhill. It is a place that strives for the best in all things for its pupils and staff. The enthusiasm for learning here is immediately striking and I look forward to contributing wherever I can.

My own children, three daughters, are well past primary age now. But the memory of how important their first school was to each of them as a foundation to their lives is still very much with me. I am determined to do all I can to help Woodhill give a great start to all the children that pass through this school.

I have had a variety of jobs in the finance sector and am currently an advisor to pension schemes and insurance companies, helping them find the best investments to meet their members’ needs. It’s great to be able to put my management experience and numeric skills to practical use to the benefit of Woodhill school.

Emma Parsons Emma Parsons Parent Governor

I am a parent Governor with a child in year 4 and a child who will hopefully be joining a reception class in September 2016.

There have been many positive changes recently in the school and I wanted to become a parent Governor to see how those changes can further develop.

This is my first school Governor position and I am excited that l have been given the opportunity to join the team of Governors, and support the school in its continued efforts to provide the highest, fully inclusive, education to the children.
