Welcome from the Chair of Governors

I have been a Governor for a short period of time, however during this time I have been able to see how passionate and driven the staff are in helping the pupils achieve their full potential. As Governck.ors, we work with all staff, parents, children and fellow Governors to support, challenge and improve the school.

Successful primary school education provides the basic building blocks for further growth and development in secondary and higher education. We aspire for the children to have kindness, resilience, integrity, courage and curiosity as these are the core values that develop a well-rounded pupil and equip them for life.

If any parents see us on site please come and introduce yourselves. We will always try to answer any questions you may have and would welcome any feedback

Mr Angus Brettell, Chair of Governors – Crowmarsh Gifford Church of England Primary School

Our Governors

The school governors share responsibility for the school, provide links with parents and the local community, and support the staff and pupils.  We are proud of the achievements of the school and its pupils.

The main roles of the governing body are:

  • to help the school raise standards of pupils’ achievement, establishing high expectations and promoting effective teaching and learning
  • To provide the headteacher and staff with support, advice and information
  • To ensure accountability and good quality education in the school.

The full governing body and governors’ committees meet at least once a term.

The term of office for all governors, except the headteacher, is four years, but governors may serve more than one term.  Any parent with a child at the school is eligible for nomination as a parent governor.
