Chair of Governors
Having been headteacher of Island Primary Schools (Chale 1994 -1997, Wootton 1997 – 2001 and Binstead 2001 until retirement 2013) I am very pleased to be able to serve Wootton again as elected Chair of Governors. Since retirement I worked for Chichester University as link Tutor with students and mentors across Island schools. I have thoroughly enjoyed my career working in primary schools and see it as a great privilege to be involved again with the team at Wootton in educating our children.
On a personal note I am married with two children, 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. As well as family my interests include reading, volunteering for Bembridge Community Library, walking and crafts.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future and will let you know, through the newsletter, when I will be available in school.
I work at Little Herons Pre-school which is on the same grounds as Wootton Community Primary School where I have worked for nearly 20 years and lived in the village for the same amount of time. My daughter attended the school over 15 years ago, so over the years I have seen many children grow up into delightful young people and feel this is in part due to Wootton Primary School and the community feel and values it promotes.
My name is Charlotte MacDonald and I became a Staff Governor in January 2017. I studied Level 3 Childcare and Education at the Isle of Wight college before starting at Wootton Community Primary School in 2015 as a Level 2 Business Admin Apprentice. I now run the office as Administrative Officer. I have an interest in seeing children develop as individuals and thoroughly enjoy taking an active part on the governing body.
I became a co-opted governor at the school in September 2015 with a child currently at the school. I have been a Firefighter with a mainland Fire and Rescue Service for the last 13 years and previously worked at GKN.
