Meet Our Governors

Message from the Chair of Governors

Dear Parents,

My expectation is that Leagrave Primary School will provide a caring, safe, engaging environment for children to access the highest levels of education, ensuring they can realise their potential and be the best they can be.

None of this would be achievable without our outstanding and dedicated staff; our governing board and your continued support.  Lead by Mrs Gillespie and her Senior Leadership Team, every member of our team strives to ensure your children receive a diverse and exciting curriculum delivered in a fun but disciplined way.  A key element of our ethos is teaching the children responsibility for their actions and to meet the high expectations of behaviour set for them.

I look forward to the challenges the role of Chair will provide.  I would like to thank you all for being such active members of our school community and would ask you for your continued support.

With warmest regards

Chair of Governors

Mrs Edel Gillespie
