Meet the Governors

As Federation Governors, we are very proud of our wonderful schools and dedicate ourselves to supporting the whole Federation team in providing the best education possible in a caring, nurturing environment. Our shared school vision- to be ‘an outstanding schools in the heart of the community’- underpins all that we do and from this sound base we work as a cohesive team to support and challenge the school to continuously improve.

This includes providing a broad, balanced and creative curriculum and an excellent teaching and learning experience for all our children. We support the ethos of our schools in maintaining the important traditions that uphold our British values (such as remembering the sacrifice of service men and women and celebrating difference within society) alongside opening up wide and exciting opportunities that inspire our children to achieve their full potential.
