On behalf of the Governing Body, welcome to Radford Semele Church of England Primary School.
At Radford Semele C of E Primary School, governors, staff, parents, children and members of our church work together in a happy, creative and high attaining environment, with our Christian ‘Values for Life’ underpinning everything we do.
Governors are appointed to ensure that the school sets challenging but achievable strategic objectives, and that these objectives are met and have the desired impact. We provide strategic direction for the improvement of the school, monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school and hold the school to account for the standards achieved and the quality of education provided to all our children.
Specifically, the Governing Body is responsible for:
In practice, this means that we are a regular presence in and around school.
As a Governing Body, we are committed to ensuring that every one of our children as access to an enriching education and fulfils their potential.We are justifiably proud of the achievements of our children across the curriculum and of the high standards maintained in both learning and behaviour.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our staff, parents, and wider school community for the support and encouragement they give our children and the school. This support gives our children opportunities for a richer education, and ensures our school has a strong partnership with our local community, particularly our church.
Together we can help our children thrive, today and in the future.
I am available to parents, carers, visitors and members of our community to discuss any matter relating to the school, and I am always delighted to receive feedback regarding our school. I can be contacted via Mrs Clarke, the School Secretary.
Please take the time to browse our school website, including our Governors’ section, where you will learn more about our school.
