I am delighted to welcome you to the Ebchester CE Primary School website.
As a small, Church of England school, Ebchester CE Primary is a very special place and I hope through the pages of this website you will get a real understanding of the school vision. As Governors, we are proud to be part of the local community and are fully committed to working with Mrs Clasper and her staff, the children and the parents to ensure that we keep encouraging our pupils to respect and care for each other, and become responsible citizens.
Part of our role as a Governing Body is to set the vision and strategic direction of the school and, to achieve this, we have to work with the school leadership team to identify where the school needs to improve to ensure your child receives the best possible education they can in a safe, nurturing and compassionate environment.
Our Governing Body consists of a diverse group of people from different walks of life, including parents. The different skill set each governor brings allows us to effectively support and challenge the leadership team as a ‘critical friend’. This is all with the aim of improving all aspects of school life, including raising attainments and achievement and ensuring your child’s needs are carefully met.
I have been a Governor at Ebchester CE Primary School for 35 years and in this time, the school has changed greatly. OFSTED rates the school as ‘Good’ and, as a caring school, the entire team work hard to give every child the best possible experience and education. As such, I am extremely proud to be part of the team and I know my fellow Governors feel the same way.
Thank you for reading this welcome and please do check out our extensive website for much more detailed information about the school.
