As a whole school community we would like to take the opportunity to thank Mrs Felicity Williamson for her leadership and dedication as she steps down from the governing body. Mrs Williamson has been on our governing board for nine years – at least six of these as chair of governors and we are very thankful for everything she has done for our school. Our new chair of governors is now Mrs Ruth Young with Mr Michael Lowe taking on the vice chair role. Governors are the largest volunteer force in the country and they play a crucial role in supporting and developing schools. I, for one, am very grateful for all the work that all of our governors, both past and present, have done in helping our school grow from strength to strength. If you are interested in joining our governing body or know someone who would be, please contact the school office or Mrs Ruth Young (Ruth.firstname.lastname@example.org).
