Governing Body

A welcome from the governing body

As your governing body we are working hard to support and also challenge the school in its continuous drive for improvement.  We undertake a variety of monitoring visits to look at many aspects of the schools work to help identify what is working well and potential areas for improvement.  We also meet frequently as both a whole governing body and in committees so we can evaluate how well the school is doing and help to identify the next steps in our development.  We work in partnership with Mr Best, Mrs Thomas and the rest of the staff.  What is shared throughout the school is a clear vision which values, nurtures and celebrates each child’s individual strengths, talents and aptitudes.
