School Management 

How the school is managed


Wynstones has adopted an approach to leadership that embraces both traditional Steiner collegial methodology and aspects of a more traditional management structure.


We have the following Leaders:

The School Education Manager (SEM) - with overall responsibility for the quality of education in the school. Mr Andy Packer was appointed in September 2017.

The School Business Manager (SBM) - with overall responsibilty for business matters. Mrs Faye Sieracki was appointed in January 2017.

The College Education Manager (CEM) - responsible for the processes and operation of the College of Teachers. Mrs Marianna Law-Lindberg currently acting as CEM


School Management

The College of Teachers works as an advisory, reference group

The Chair of Lower School (pupils 6 – 14): Management responsibility for the curriculum, teaching and learning, standards and attainment

The Chair of Upper School (pupils 14 – 18): Management responsibility for the curriculum, teaching and learning, standards and attainment

A Mandate system enlists the individual members to undertake an area of responsibility in the school


School Council - The Trustees

Wynstones is an educational charity and the independent trustees making up the School Council have final responsibility for the well-being of the school.

The School Council is ultimately responsible for all aspects of the school. The Council’s role is not day-to-day management of the school which is delegated to the Education Leader/Chair of College. Our overall commitment is that: 'The Council, supporting the work of staff, the well being of pupils and the interest of parents, holds itself accountable to the Association to see that Wynstones (a) achieves its desired aims, and (b) avoids unacceptable actions and situations. We further go on to set expectations for Trustees including a Council Job Description, Code of Conduct, Chair’s Role, and Governing Style. If you are interested in becoming a Trustee you will be expected to work with these expectations.

We have recently been developing our ways of working on Council which are documented in the Wynstones Governance Manual.
