Governors' Vision and Aims
Madresfield Local Governing Body (Local Academy Board) - our Visions and Aims
The role of the Governing body is to support and challenge the senior leaders of the school. The Governing body ensures that the school is continually reflecting on and improving its practice in order to create a learning environment in which all the children can achieve the best possible outcomes.
At Madresfield C.E. Primary School the Governing Body has 9 members made up of 2 staff, 2 parents and 5 members from the local Church or local community. Except for the staff members, we are all volunteers who feel privileged to be part of Madresfield school and are committed to creating a school that has a strong ethos, where every child is valued, respects others and is inspired to be a confident learner.
To offer an outstanding, all-round education to our community, rooted in the shared Christian values of love, honesty and respect. We seek to demonstrate this ethos in our school by providing a safe, caring environment where everyone is valued and pupils are inspired to develop a love for learning that will equip them for life in the 21st century.
