Welcome from the chair

Welcome from Chair of Governors

Thank you for visiting the Governor’s area of our school website.


It is  with great pleasure on behalf of the Governors that I welcome you to St. Michael’s Voluntary Aided C of E Primary School.


At St. Michael’s Governors, staff, parents and children work together building on our success as a good school in a happy, creative, high attaining environment where everyone feels valued. As governors we are justifiably proud of our children who develop not only academically but who also develop key skills to grow in confidence and self-esteem during their time at St. Michael’s. The Governors would like to express their thanks to all parents who support their children so admirably. In a good school such as ours, parents take a great interest in their child’s learning and development.


Our role as Governors is to make sure that school objectives are met and that planning for the future is both aspirational and realistic. We are here to support the Headteacher, Senior Leadership team and teaching staff so that our children have access to an enriched education and the opportunities they so rightly deserve.


The Governors work through three committees, Church School and Community, Curriculum and Effectiveness, Finance and HR, as well as carrying our individual roles to both challenge and support the school in achieving the very best for our children.


I feel privileged to be the Chair of Governors at St. Michael’s School and to lead an experienced team who work hard to share their expertise to guide the school forward. We all try to attend school events, so look out for us and please come and have a chat. If you are interested in becoming a Governor please contact me via my details below.


Should you wish to contact me to discuss any matter further please do so via email at diane@dianeallen.co.uk or through the school office, secretary@stmicheast.co.uk
