I am absolutely delighted to have been elected Chair of Governors for the 2018-19 academic year. I am very much looking forward to continuing to work with our very dedicated governing body, the senior management team and of course all the school staff to ensure that the children get the best possible education, in a supported, friendly and safe manner.
I have a long association with the Federation … back to the 1930’s! My father, my wife and I myself all attended the junior school and my two children attended both the Infant and Junior Schools. Living as close to the school as I do, I have literally seen it just about every day of my life.
I have to be honest and say that there are many challenges ahead for the Federation (as there are for every other school in Dorset) in term of tough performance requirements and very tight financial constraints. The task ahead will not be easy, but I am convinced that if the staff, governors, parents and friends of the federation all work together as one big famuly, all pushing in the same direction, the tasks ahead will be easier to achieve.
I hope to have the opportunity to meet and chat with parents as often as possible, but if in the meantime you need to speak to me or make me aware of something, you can contact me via the school office(s) or by email.
