Welcome to Crowmarsh Gifford C.E. Primary School. I am Maureen Ford and am just completing my first year as Chair of Crowmarsh Gifford School’s Governors. I have been involved in education nearly all my life as a student, a teacher, a parent and a governor. Crowmarsh is the second Primary School where I have been a governor and I have also been a governor of a secondary school for over 20 years.
It has taken me all the last year to get to know something about the ethos of Crowmarsh school and have some knowledge and idea of what is important to the Head and staff with regard to the education of the pupils. I know that they are all working hard to help the pupils achieve their full potential. The teaching and learning skills provided for the children are vitally important to their progress and development but it is important that education is fun, that they enjoy what they are doing on a daily basis. Successful primary school education provides the basic building block for further growth and success in secondary and higher education. We want the children to have resilience and confidence but also kindness and understanding for those who are experiencing difficulties.
Crowmarsh is a very good school with the potential to be outstanding, as the OFSTED Inspector rated it in October 2017. I find being the Chair of its Governors inspirational and hope that we can work together with the Head and the Staff to achieve the high standards we are setting ourselves.
If any parents see me on site please come and introduce yourselves. I will always try to answer any questions you may have
Mrs Maureen Ford
