Message from the Chair of Governors

Address from Mrs. Gayle Baty

I am extremely proud to have been elected as the new Chair of Governors of Corbridge Church of England First School. The school provides a rich, varied and high quality education for the young people of our community delivered by a highly committed team. I very much look forward to continuing to build upon the strong working relationship I have established with Miss Ainsley.  As Chair of Governors I am committed to ensure that the children of the school benefit from the highest standards of education and care.

Nationally school budgets are a concern, but we have well managed finances and constantly ensure value for money in the allocations we receive. This year our school improvement partner is Mrs Louise Malin who will continue to challenge us and ensure the curriculum and provision in the school are at the highest standards.

Finally I would like to extend my thanks to Mrs. Hart and all the staff. As Governors we are privileged to see the great work happening in the school through our monitoring and visits. Through monitoring, and also by speaking to parents and children, it is clear to see that this is a thriving school and a great environment to learn which is a testament to the hard work, and dedication of the staff and our wonderful children.

Best wishes,

Gayle Baty

Chair of Governors
