Why I became a governor…

The welcome I got when my children joined the school was something special – warm, friendly and very welcoming. So much so, that I decided to join as a Parent governor. I have since gone on to become Chair of Governors.

The school is an all-inclusive school that wants every child to succeed. No matter what a child’s ability they will leave our school in good stead. The school is forward-thinking and often ahead of the changes seen in education.

It is a privilege for me to be able to help the children in our community have the best education so that they are set up for their journey in life. Every member of staff in the school goes above and beyond. They are caring, methodical and efficient in everything they do. They encourage all the children to achieve their very best.

I am proud to be Chair of Governors of such an aspirational school and I look forward to supporting the school in the future.

Michael Porter Chair of Governors
