Letter from the Chair of Governors


Dear Parents and Friends,

On behalf of all the Governors, welcome to West Melton Primary School.

At West Melton Primary School governors, staff, parents and children are working as a team, to build a successful school in a caring atmosphere where everyone feels valued. We are proud of all our children and how hard they are all working to achieve their full potential.

As Governors we become involved with a variety of issues including finance, pupil welfare, public relations, building/grounds maintenance and staff appointments. However, without a doubt, we consider that our most important role is to monitor the welfare and education of the pupils.

We are justifiably proud of the children in our school. In addition, this is an opportunity for me to thank all the parents who encourage and support their children. Parents' support is extremely important during these early years of primary education.

Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met and that planning for the future is both visionary and realistic. We are here to support and encourage the Headteacher and all school personnel so that children have access to an enriched education and the opportunities they deserve.

I am available to parents for any matter relating to the school, once you have discussed it with the Headteacher. Parents and governors have key roles in helping West Melton Primary School to achieve high standards for all our children both now, and for future generations.

With my best wishes,


Rebecca Peel
