The School Governors

The governors are responsible for setting and maintaining the ethos and strategic direction of the school. Our governing body at St Thomas and St Anne's CE Primary School is made up of members of the local and school community. The governors work as a team to make sure the school provides good quality education and they work in partnership with our teachers and Headteacher to offer support and challenge in making strategetic decisions about the school's long-term goals.

Welcome and Introduction from Judy McFall, Chair of Governors

On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to St Thomas and St Anne's CE Primary School, Hanwood. We aim to provide a quality learning environment through "Caring, learning and growing together." The Governing Body, strong leadership and energised staff of the school are all committed to supporting the children in achieving their best. I am proud to act as Chair for a school that has such a strong focus on its pupils. Our school is an important part of the local community with lots of valued volunteers, close links to the church and many popular events put on by our active Home School Association (HSA). The school has a welcoming and warm atmosphere, which is often commented on by visitors. We want every child to feel valued in whatever they do. Whilst challenges exist in the current educational climate, it is schools like St Thomas and St Anne's which are able to adapt effectively whilst maintaining strong values and commitment to providing the best quality of education, that will thrive.

I hope you will get the chance to visit our school and meet our wonderful pupils, who will always speak from the heart!
