Letter from the Chair of Governors

A welcome from our new Chair of Governors.

Dear parents and friends
I have been part of the governing body for the last 4 years and as of September 2018 have become the Chair of Governors at Aldersbrook Primary School.  The governing body’s role is to support this school to continue to provide a friendly and engaging environment where children actively want to learn independently and confidently.   
As far as our role is concerned, we support the school in a number of key areas such as pupil welfare, progress and achievement, finance and budgets, staff development and recruitment.  Governors come from a wide variety of backgrounds, bringing different skills to the fore and meet regularly with Mr Hughes and staff to check that the school continues to monitor and evaluate it’s objectives both strategically and operationally.  
I am lucky enough to have my 2 children at Aldersbrook and I truly believe that this is a really special school. I have seen first hand just how much effort the staff go to to ensure all children are happy and confident.  In addition, the school is incredibly fortunate to have such a close knit community supporting it and a wonderful PTA.  As the old African proverb goes, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ and I believe it also takes a community to support a school and I’m proud to be part of the community that supports Aldersbrook in being the outstanding school it is. 
Should you wish to share any thoughts or ideas, please contact the parent governors and they will ensure that your comments are heard.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the coming year.
Kind regards
Chris Patsalis
