Ken Wood

I have been a governor since being appointed as Deputy Head teacher of Normanby Primary School in January 1994 and have seen a great deal of change in education over that period. 

One of the biggest changes has been that of the role of the governor as they are now much more closely involved in the strategic planning of a school and require an in depth knowledge of the school’s performance and their statutory obligations. As deputy head in the school, I feel that I can bring a certain level of expertise to the role of governor and support the Headteacher in their vision for the school whilst giving the teacher’s perspective as I am still very much involved in teaching on a day-to-day basis. 

I have always felt great admiration for governors who voluntarily give up their time from their busy lives with their families and careers because they want to make a difference to the children in our school and strive to seek continuous improvement. It has been a privilege to be a teacher governor of Normanby Primary as I have always felt it is a fantastic school with wonderful children, extremely hard-working and dedicated staff and very supportive parents and governors.
