Margaret Forster


I have been a Governor since 2002. I serve on the Learning and Teaching and Salaries Committees, and I am also responsible for Headteacher’s Performance Management and am the Literacy Link Governor.

Since we arrived in Werrington with our family in 1991, my husband and I have attended St John’s with Emmanuel Church. We were members of the Fair Trade Group there for many years, and as part of that work I helped to support the school to achieve Fair Trade status.

I worked for 13 years as School Librarian at Bretton Woods School, then at The Voyager School, retiring in 2009. Since retiring, I have come into school regularly to help with reading and sewing, and I have enjoyed being able to accompany school trips. My previous work has given me an interest in promoting reading, and I have been delighted to see the new initiatives in recent years, such as the Key Stage 1 Library and the Kindles for year 6.

It is very rewarding being a Governor of William Law School as it has a special Christian ethos and aims to nurture the whole child, as well as meeting the Ofsted requirements in reading, writing and maths. I have a special interest in music, and it is always a pleasure to attend concerts and enjoy the high standards of music in the school, and to see so many children involved.
