Kings Nympton Primary School


School Governance
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 school. The Woodland Federation Governing Board meets twice a term and draft minutes can be viewed by following the links below. In addition to the full governing board we have two committees that also meet twice a term, they are:
Resources: Amanda Blewett, Deborah Boundy, Jo Goddard, Robin Harper, Richard Harrison (associate).
Teaching and Learning: Jo Duffin, Cate Godly, Leica Lucas-Ridge, Cherry Roadnight, Bryant Sanders.
Additional committees meet to monitor progress against school improvement priorities and to discuss pay and staff performance and complaints. However, if your child has a problem at any school within the Woodland Federation, we hope you will be able to resolve it by an informal discussion with your child's teacher or if this isn’t possible with the Executive Headteacher. If you are unable to resolve a problem informally, we have a formal complaints procedure that you can follow. Please see the policy on our policies page of the website or contact the school and obtain a copy before making your complaint. You can be assured that whatever the nature of your concern, the school's support for your child will not change in any way. All concerns will be properly considered. If you would like to contact the governing board please email the clerk at
