Message From the Chair of Governors

As the newly appointed Chair of the school Governors, I would like to welcome you to the new school year and to thank all the children, staff, carers, parents and governors for making September such a positive experience for all. In this turbulent world it is good to know that our caring school is a place of safety and stability where children receive the challenge and encouragement needed to develop a lifelong love of learning.

I am excited by the development that will be made during this year in the areas of phonics, reading and writing which are the bedrocks of learning and will build upon the success of the introduction of Power maths throughout the school.

One of the great strengths of our school is the attention taken to the care and well being of all and ensuring such activities like the recent Sports Week are timetabled in to our school year.

I consider it a privilege to take on this role and would like to thank the previous Chair, Angela Birchall, for all the work she did.  I look forward to her continuing support as we move forward and sharing the adventures with you that this school year will bring.

With best wishes

David Ireland
