Eric Hemming

Chair of Governors



Jane Wilford

Head Teacher


My name is Jane Wilford and I am the Headteacher at Wootton Community Primary School. I have been a part of the education system since leaving school many years ago, first working as a Nursery Nurse before moving onto teaching. Since moving to the Island, I have taught across the whole Primary range before becoming a Specialist Leader of Education. This role enabled me to work with colleagues from many island schools before joining Greenmount Primary as a Deputy Head. I am excited to be leading the school forward as we begin a new exciting phase working with the whole school community.

Becki Kujabi


Co-opted Governor

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.

Debs Blake


Staff Governor

My name is Debs Blake and I am currently the Year 5 Teacher at Wootton Primary School, having worked here since January 2016.  My other responsibilities include overseeing the leadership of the Science.

Prior to working at Wootton, I worked as a class teacher at St. Thomas of Canterbury Primary School,  Assistant Headteacher at Hunnyhill Primary school and then I spent ten years working as a teacher for the Isle of Wight Family Learning Service (Adult Community).

I am a mum of two children who both attended Wootton Primary school before moving to Secondary School.  I also attended Wootton Primary as a child myself.  I have previous governor experience at this school where I held the role of Chair of Governors for 4 years.
