Message From the Chair of Governors

The new school year got off to a splendid start and here we are nearly half way through October with Harvest behind us and Christmas looming in the not too distant future!

I would like to thank all the children, staff, carers, parents and governors for making September such a positive experience for all. 

The caring nature of our school, a place of safety and stability where children receive the challenge and encouragement needed to develop a lifelong love of learning was recognised in the OFSTED Inspection and report during the last school year. I was delighted that  the school obtained a well deserved ‘Good’ rating.  This reflects and is largely dependant upon the dedication and hard work of all who are dedicated to improving the educational experience of all the children.  The report also recognised the success in the early years where the children were making a strong start and this continues throughout the school.

Much is already underway to build on these successes and to make our school an even better experience for the children. 

 I consider it a privilege to be able to continue this role and I am grateful to the work done by my fellow governors in supporting the school in various ways.  

With best wishes

David Ireland
