Statement from Margaret Peacock

As chair of the EAB (Education Advisory Board) formerly known as Governing Body, I would like to explain about our role at Wybers Wood Academy.

We support and challenge the Principal and Senior Leadership Team in the teaching and learning which takes place throughout the Academy.

Our recent Ofsted Inspection recognised the valuable work we are doing to encourage everyone in our school community to work together in our pupil's education.  I visit the school regularly and I am always impressed with the enthusiasm the children have towards their learning.

During the coming year, I am looking forward to working with children, staff, parents and EAB members to continue our support at Wybers Wood Academy.
