A very warm welcome on behalf of Waverley’s Governors to our school website. I am delighted to introduce myself as the chair of Governors.
This is my first role as chair of governors, a role I took on in last year having worked with Gail and the governing body since 2016
I am incredibly proud to be associated with Waverley school and impressed how all the the staff and children have adapted to the changes in the last few years.
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.
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.
