School Governors

On behalf of the Governing Body, of Reedham Primary and Nursery School, I welcome both you and your child to our school.

Starting school is a milestone in your child’s life. We hope that our website will help by providing information about both the curriculum and the running of our school.

The Governors intend to assist in providing the right conditions for the full development of your child’s education.

The Staff’s efforts will be focused on ensuring that all children receive the best possible education and also spend a happy and fulfilling time at Reedham. With this in mind, extra-curricula activities will be included with the intention that children will gain social skills, be able to judge issues on moral grounds and also value the spiritual side of life.

A supportive partnership between school and home is important, if your child is to do well. We therefore encourage you to keep in regular touch with the school.

Should you have further questions please feel free to contact the school office or any of the governors.
