Nicky Farmer has stepped down as chair of the Governing Board after four years in post. She has been a fantastic chair and has taken the governors from strength to strength with this recently being acknowledged with their Governor Mark achievement. We would like to thank Nicky very much for her hard work, dedication and commitment to this role. We are delighted that she will be staying on the Governing Board as co-opted governor.
Heather Sheppard has been nominated as our new Chair of Governors. Heather was our finance and leadership governor and looks forward to continuing to work closely with the school leadership team and governors to further support Westmeads.
At the end of last year, Eve Dyer came to the end of her term as a parent governor and I am very pleased to announce that Mrs Katy Diamond has been appointed as our new Parent Governor. We look forward to her contribution to the school Governing Board.
