Letter from the Chair of Governors
Welcome to Shrewton Primary School.
I hope this website provides you with useful information and a flavour of our village school.
It is important that as parents, you feel welcome. A good relationship between home and school helps to build a child’s confidence and is a great help in their development as young learners in our school. We value your co-operation, support and involvement as parents for the benefit of our children.
The children at Shrewton have a happy, safe and caring environment in which to learn. We aim to help our children to be confident, sensitive to others, interested in the world around them and to prepare them for the challenges ahead.
School governors are a part of our school community that you may not meet very often as our work mainly takes place in meetings after the normal school day. We are a team of volunteers from many different walks of life and bring many experiences to help the school. We are part of the school to make sure the schools’ performance is evaluated and continuously improves, to provide the strategic direction for the school, to ensure legal obligations are met and that the school keeps abreast with any new initiatives. Most of all we are governors because we care about the school and want it to succeed in giving our young learners’ the best start in their education.
If you would like to hear more about our lovely school please visit the school or contact me via the school office.
I hope your children enjoy their time at Shrewton Primary School.
