Dear Parents and Carers,
Leadership Update from Governors

Thank you

First of all the Governors would like to say a huge thank you to you, your children and all the staff at Woodfield for the tremendous effort you have all made to allow the children to continue learning under the pandemic restrictions.  It is very much appreciated.  We hope that your children are enjoying being back in school.

Leadership Update

Following discussion with ourselves, the Local Authority and Priestley Academy Trust, we are now in a position to share plans for the leadership of Woodfield with you.  The Priestley Academy Trust have agreed to continue to support Woodfield with leadership with Mr Atkinson and Miss Marwood continuing their work at Woodfield.  We know that they both care passionately about the school and we are absolutely delighted that they will continue to provide the expertise and stability necessary for the school to prosper and grow.  This is excellent news for the school and we are very grateful to Mr Atkinson and Miss Marwood and the Priestley Academy Trust for their continued commitment.

I am sure you will have noticed, or heard about, all the improvements that have been made already. These have been noted by both Ofsted and the Local Authority on their visits, which is very encouraging news. The Governors are well aware of the huge amount of work it has taken to achieve this. The new and engaging curriculum that has been introduced will ensure that your children have the stimulation and support necessary to succeed.

Thank you for your continued support.  Together we can ensure that the children at Woodfield embody the school vision of “Inspiring Learning Together”.

Kind regards
