The Governing Body is delighted to welcome Lucy Holder, whose daughter is currently in class 2, as a new Parent Governor (elected unopposed). We have a second vacancy, and strongly encourage anyone interested to talk to a Governor and find out more about the role. As I will no longer have any children at the School from September, I feel I should no longer be a Parent Governor at the School, and therefore I’m stepping down as Governor (and hence Chair) at the end of the summer. The Governing Body has elected Steve Williamson and Tricia Carrington as Co-Chairs from September, with Sarah Kiddle as Vice-Chair. With the new Governors and Co-and Vice Chairs, the Governing Body will be in a strong position to provide effective support and strategic leadership next year. I thank all the Governors with whom I have worked over the last 9 years, and wish the current Governing Body every success in the future. I also take this opportunity to thank all the staff for their support.
