Willow Wood has a supportive Governing body that works with the Head Teacher and staff to provide children with the highest quality education, encouraging them to develop and reach their potential.

The governors represent different sections of the community and play an active part in the life of the school. We encourage any parent that may be interested in getting involved with the school to come and speak with the Head Teacher - Ms Susan Tomlinson.

The Guide to School Governance explains the role and responsibilities of a school governor and we would encourage all to get involved with the school.
