Welcome from the Chair of Governors
On behalf of the local governing board (LGB) I would like to welcome you to our school. Here at Christ Church, we strive to nurture a life long love of learning that will stay with children well beyond their time here, giving them the skills, confidence and creativity to make a positive contribution in the future. We are a small, friendly community that takes the time to get to know one another. As governors, it is our job to ensure that the school is meeting the needs of its pupils through a broad and rich curriculum and diverse enrichment opportunities. We believe that by working together to celebrate and support each others' talents, we hope to inspire young minds to reach beyond the stars and grasp their dreams.
(Chair of Governors)
