Message from Chair of Governors

St Mary's is a thriving, successful primary school which continues to work extremely hard to give every pupil who attends the school every opportunity to achieve their maximum potential.  As Chairman of the Governors I am very proud to be associated with the hardworking staff, both teaching and non teaching, at St Mary's.  We see our role as governors to help and support the school, to continue the high standards set and to work alongside them as a "critical friend".


Increasingly as governors our main work is through our various subcommittees who report to the full governing body which meets five to six times a year.  I am very appreciative of all the support, time and effort my fellow governors put in but would particularly like to record my thanks to Mike Wilkinson (Vice Chair of Governors and Chair of the Safeguarding Committee) and Liz Merrick (Chair of Curriculum and Vulnerable Groups Committee and our Pupil Premium Governor) and Jemma Pattison (Chair of the Pay, Personnel and Premises Committee).


We are in the process of writing a pen picture of ourselves below which give you a small insight to the "make-up" of your Governing Body here at St Mary's.
