Chair of Governors Statement
Welcome from the governing body to our wonderful school. Our role as governors is to support and challenge the strategic direction of the school in a friendly manner, our aim is to help everyone to fulfil the potential of every child within the school.
Amongst the governing body we have over half a century of knowledge from being in the education sector, working at senior and classroom level, with experience across curriculum planning, SEND, school finances and learning. We hope our experience will ensure your child has a great foundation in their first school.
We firmly support the school and love that every member of staff always goes the extra mile to ensure every child receives the support they need to achieve their full potential.
We are a Catholic school, and strive to live and support the gospel values with compassion and fairness, using FAITH to provide a warm and welcoming environment. We are supporting the school who are encouraging pupils to become global citizens who have sense of fairness, justice and are able to thrive in a diverse and rich community.
Our school offers a wonderful place for your child to develop, and we are proud as a governing body to support a school team that truly do place your child at the centre of all they do.
Should you need to speak to a Governor, all Governors can be contacted by writing to the school.
