The School Governors

The governors are responsible for setting and maintaining the ethos and strategic direction of the school. Our governing body at St Thomas and St Anne's CE Primary School is made up of members of the local and school community. The governors work as a team to make sure the school provides good quality education and they work in partnership with our teachers and Headteacher to offer support and challenge in making strategetic decisions about the school's long-term goals.

Welcome and Introduction from Geraint Phillips, Chair of Governors

On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to St Thomas and St Anne's CE Primary School, Hanwood. We aim to provide a quality learning environment through "Caring, learning and growing together." The Governing Body, our fantastic Headteacher and excellent staff team are committed to supporting all our children to achieve their best, with every child being treated as an individual in order to help them achieve their full potential.

I am proud to act as Chair of Governors for such a warm and welcoming school. Our school has a strong family feel and is at the heart of our local community with lots of valued volunteers, close links to the church and many popular events put on by our active Home School Association (HSA).

I hope you will get the chance to visit our school and meet Hannah, our staff team and pupils, so that you can see our happy and friendly school for yourself.
