If you are interested in becoming a Governor at Sheringham Woodfields School, please contact the Clerk to Governors, Matthew Smith, on 01263 820520. We keen to hear from anyone wishing to contribute and support the school.

No Governor has any business or pecuniary interest in the school (as declared in November 2016).

The Full Governing Body meet a minimum of 6 times per Academic Year. The Full Governing Body sits without any separate Committees in respect of Finance, Personnel and Curriculum. All such matters are reviewed by all Governors at Full Governing Body meetings. Our terms of reference reflects this change.

A separate committee exists for Pay related decision and Complaints.
