Chair of Governors

At St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School governors, staff, parents and children work as a team, building on success, working together to develop the whole person through respect.

We are proud of the high standards our pupils achieve across the curriculum.

As Governors we become involved with a variety of issues including finance, pupil welfare, public relations, building/grounds maintenance and staff appointments. However, without a doubt, we consider that our most important role is to monitor the welfare and education of the pupils.

Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met and that planning for the future is both visionary and realistic. We are here to support and encourage the Headteacher and all school personnel so that children have access to an enriched education and the opportunities they deserve.

I am available to parents for any matter relating to the school, once you have discussed it with the Headteacher. Parents and governors have key roles in helping St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School to maintain high standards for all our children both now, and for future generations.
With my best wishes,

Frank Vaudrey
Chair of Governors
