Welcome from the Chair of the Governing Board
In September 2018, I was appointed as the Chair of Governors of this wonderful school and it is a privilege for me to take up this appointment, having served on the Governing Board for several years.
Prior to being appointed as a Foundation Governor, I had been helping in the school for 3 years as a reading volunteer. I quickly became aware of what a welcoming and inclusive school it is, with a Leadership Team, teachers and support staff who provide a very caring ethos, a safe learning environment and a broad and enriched curriculum for all the children.
Since taking on the role of Foundation Governor, I have attended weekly Mass and observed the close links with the Parish of St Philip Neri Church. I feel that each child is encouraged to develop and use personal talents and skills in areas of learning, sport and the creative arts, whilst also supporting others through their caring relationships.
From starting in Foundation 1 to leaving in Year 6, the children’s achievements and attendance are celebrated. They are supported academically and spiritually, so that they can move into their next phase of education with confidence and many happy memories.
My fellow Governors and I value the support given by our parents/carers. We thank those of you who send your child to our school and would encourage those who are thinking of choosing our school to come for a visit, where you will receive a warm welcome.
