Welcome from the Chair of Governors

St Weonards Primary School is set within a thriving rural community and through close links with St Weonards Church, the local shop and the farming community the children are able to benefit from a very varied range of extra educational and personal development opportunities. The school prides itself on being safe, friendly welcoming environment where the excellent staff are committed to providing a curriculum which will ensure the children that attend the school achieve the best possible outcomes that stay with them in the future, giving them the skills to become responsible citizens and life- long learners.
Being part of the Herefordshire Marches Federation of Academies, St Weonards school has been able to provide so many extra opportunities for the children including a varied range of sporting, musical and exciting residential trips. As the assistant manager of St Weonards Pre-School (set within the school), I am able to be involved in the school on a daily basis which enables me to see first hand the children ‘growing together, learning together’ (the motto chosen by the children). The children also chose the slogan – ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’.
We also pride ourselves on the good relationships with our parents and we continue to listen so that we can also grow together. The school parents also run a hardworking PTFA, who organise a variety of events throughout the year that enable the children to benefit from more equipment and educational trips. St Weonards Primary school also has it’s own school kitchen that provides hot healthy meals that the children really enjoy. St Weonards school always strives to achieve more so please come along and see this happy, friendly, healthy school of which the governors are really proud, after all “Together everyone achieves more”.

Governing bodies have a vital role to play in driving up school and pupil performance and ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education. If you are interested in becoming a Governor of our school and you have any special skills or talents and the commitment to make a valid contribution to our governing body please contact the school.
