School Governance

Winkleigh Primary School and Kings Nympton Primary School are schools that are maintained by Devon County Council.  Devon’s maintained schools are managed by governing boards whose membership includes parents, staff and co-opted governors. Headteachers are directly responsible to the governing board for the performance of the schools.

The Governing Body of The Woodland Federation consists of representatives from staff, parents, the Learning Authority and the wider community. It ensures that statutory roles and responsibilities are met and also monitors the work of both schools in the Federation. Governors work with the schools and staff to provide the best learning environment and educational opportunities for the children.
