For Everyone

Welcome from chair of governors

A very warm welcome on behalf of Waverley’s Governors to our school website.  I am delighted that Waverley has invested in producing such a modern and easy-to-use site that allows parents and professionals to find their way around the school from the comfort of their armchairs!

The website provides in-depth information about Waverley including information on policies, all the departments -Primary 1, Primary 2, Secondary 3, and Secondary 4 as well as up-to-date information about school activities, events, and other initiatives and activities taking place in Enfield and beyond.
We want this to be a parent-friendly website, so please let us know of anything you wish to post on the Notice Board that will be helpful to other families and also any suggestions you may have to improve our communication with you.

Our pupils are our priority and we want to ensure that we continue to provide the best possible education and opportunities for them to ensure they thrive as valued members of our community.

The school Governors completed the skills matrix and it was identified areas for development: Experience of being a board member in another sector or a governor/trustee in another school, the experience of chairing a board, financial planning, the experience of procurement, the experience of premises, and facilities management, links with the community, links with local businesses.
