We have link governors associated with college from both of our schools – Fox Wood School and Green Lane School.
They will visit the college to undertake learning walks, meet with the Head of 6th Form and/or college staff at least once a term, prior to the governors meetings in order to monitor progress towards the college development plan.
They will make clear to the full governing body their findings and ensure that they are made aware of any issues that need to be addressed, any areas that are not progressing as planned and any areas where outstanding practice is taking place and needs to be recognised.
Isobel is a baker & confectioner by trade and is mum to one of our past students. She has been a governor at Green Lane School for 12 years and has had links to all key stages through school. She is a very proactive and was heavily involved with the development of the post 16 provision at Green Lane School and the move to Woolston 6th Form College. She believes that our young people can do more and wants to see them achieving the best that they can and this drives her forward in her support for us. She was instrumental in setting up the SEN youth club based here at college and volunteers there to ‘give something back’ for all the support she received over the years.
