Bo Scholefield (Chair and Parent Governor)
Mary and I have one remaining son at Wainstalls, our twin boys having moved to Secondary School this summer and my three daughters came through the school in the 1990's when I was previously a Governor. Apart from a short spell at York, I have always lived locally on Luddenden Dean and attended the school when it was much smaller. As a Chartered Surveyor I worked for the Environment Agency and previously Calderdale MBC. I gave this up to be a self-unempolyed farmer with Native Breed Cattle and Sheep. One aim is to bring the School closer to the Wainstalls Community. Another is to value, retain and nurture the high quality staff that we are so lucky to have. Through this we will deliver an Outstanding Standard of education for todays pupils and those yet to come. My claim to fame: Twenty five years ago I came up with the line... “Together We Can”
I work in strategic procurement for BASF. Part of this role requires negotiation skills and analytical thinking, along with systematic and pragmatic problem solving – and I don’t mind asking awkward questions!
Linda Waugh (Principal)
At Wainstalls School we work very hard to best serve our pupils, their families and our local community. We consistently strive to create a welcoming, safe and happy environment where all children, staff and visitors are valued and respected. We encourage a sense of pride, purpose and a positive approach to learning where everyone works together with enthusiasm and confidence. We aim to nurture academic, personal, spiritual and social development within a caring and challenging ethos so that all of our pupils can achieve.
At Wainstalls School we are incredibly proud of the achievements of our pupils and we have again been recognised as one of Calderdale’s highest achieving schools. This is made possible through the dedication and commitment of our fantastic team of staff and governors and amazing support from parents and local community.
I am a new member of the governing body of Wainstalls School, although I have had a personal connection with the school for many years as both my children, Harry and Phoebe, attended.
I wholeheartedly supported the school as a parent, fully believing the staff and governors positively enhanced my childrens' education, enabling them to have a tremendously enjoyable, happy and productive time as pupils here. Now they have moved on to secondary school, I am keen to stay in touch with Wainstalls school and hopefully give something back in return.
I live just across the road and am proud to be a member of the Wainstalls community. I was Head of Expressive Arts at Calder High School for many years, and latterly was Director of Arts at Brooksbank School. I now teach part time in local primary schools as well as running a property renovation business. I hope I can offer both educational and buildings related advice to the governing body, supporting both staff and students.
