Welcome to our Governors’ Section
We would like to welcome you to Upton St James CE Primary School. Everyone at the school, works hard to achieve the very best they can; teachers, learning support assistants, support staff and especially the children.
We believe that every child is an able child and the school ensures that every child gets the support they need to do well academically, socially, emotionally and, to enjoy their years at the school.
Our aim is for everyone to reach their full potential and, by working together with parents and carers, provide a firm foundation for life at secondary school and beyond.
The Governors at Upton St James work closely with the school to fulfil their statutory role and to shape the school’s policy, curriculum, accountability and ethos. The Governors, who are volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, all contribute to the work of the Governing Body through regular meetings and visits to the school.
It is a tribute to the school’s senior leadership team and staff, and a matter of pride to us all, that children progress so well and are happy at Upton St James.
If you would like to speak to a governor, we can be contacted via the school office.
