New Chair of Governors David Appleyard was recently elected as our new federation chair of governors. This followed the resignation of Bernard Leeden, who has now gone to live nearer his daughter in Whitchurch. Those of you who knew Bernard over the years will know what a difficult decision this was for him, as he is passionate about the schools and the villages and worked tirelessly to support us to get the very best outcomes for our children. We are full of gratitude for all the time he gave us. David has been on our governing board for 7 years now and has a son in year one and another due to start school in September at Baschurch. You can find out more about our governing body under the Teams section of our website, where you will also find contact details for them should you ever need to get in touch.
