Governing body

Welcome from the Chair

On behalf of the Governing Body I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Tregadillett Primary School, we pride ourselves on Building Powerful Learners Together. Our core values provide unique learning experiences for all individuals by demonstrating and encouraging, compassion, creativity, courage, confidence and curiosity throughout the whole school community. I hope that you have been able to find everything you need here on our website. 

I have been a parent here at Tregadillett for 8 years and have recently taken on the role as Chair of Governors.  When I'm not at Tregadillett, I support my husband with administration for our family-run manufacturing business and smallholding, alongside spending time with my family.

Governors are appointed to support the Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team, whilst providing strategic direction to continue to improve the school with a focus on, safeguarding, finance, personnel, premises management, data and curriculum. Our governing body takes a hands-on approach to governance, we can often be found in the school, working with children and offering support to our wonderful staff team.

We value the views of all parents, staff and children, if you see me around, and would like to have a chat, please do come and say hello. I look forward to meeting you throughout the school year.
