Naomi Ezzard

Headteacher, Windlesham Village Infant School

Naomi has been Headteacher at Windlesham Infant School since January 2014.  She holds the National Professional Qualification for Headship and has previously worked as Headteacher in two church schools; an all-through primary school and an infant school.  Naomi has a BA(Hons) in Modern Languages and European Studies.  In September 2021 Ofsted rated our school 'good' in the areas of: Behaviours and Attitudes; Personal Development: Leadership and Management; Early Years Provision.  Safeguarding is effective.  However, the 'Quality of Education' was rated as Requires Improvement and this area dictates the overall result of the inspection.  The report does draw out that 'Leaders want the best for all pupils and know what improvements are needed to the curriculum to help pupils to flourish and succeed'.  

We are all extremely proud of our school and collectively, with support from TAMAT, we will work to make the changes necessary to ensure the next inspection outcome is Good in all areas.
