Welcome from the Chair of Governors

 
 
Dear Parents / Carers,
 
On behalf of the Board of Governors, may I extend a warm welcome to you and your child.
The Governing Body consists of people who have the best interests of your child at heart. 
They work closely with the head teacher and the rest of the staff to ensure that your child receives the best possible education.
We see the school as a community, with each person playing their part in providing effective learning experiences for every pupil, ensuring all pupils are able to reach their potential.
As a Governing Body, we recognise that a positive partnership with parents is essential if the needs of every child are to be met. 
 
We welcome comments and suggestions from parents and there are opportunities for parents to join the governing body.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact one of the Governors. All governors can be contacted through the school office. Your parent governors can often be found in the playground during the school run. Information about the Governing Body can be found on the ‘Governors notice board’ in the playground.
