A Welcome from our Chair of Governors


At Grasmere we are proud to offer a happy, inclusive and caring learning environment at our school. We want to make sure that every single one of all our children is able to develop to their full potential academically and socially, so that they have the best possible start to their lives.

The Governing Body works closely with the Headteacher and staff. We are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, ensuring that the budget is well managed and for supporting our excellent and dedicated staff team in their work.

We have a wonderful parent and carers association here at Grasmere, Friends of Grasmere School, or FROGS as they are known. They are very active and organise many activities and events throughout the school year. The funds raised by FROGS are hugely important and help to provide the children with as many experiences as possible while supporting the curriculum.

We very much welcome parental/carer involvement in our school and staff are always ready to meet with you at arranged times.

Minutes of each Governing Body Meeting are displayed on the Governors notice board by the reception area and available on the school web site.

The comments here are a short introduction to the work of the Governing Body and I hope they are helpful. Thank you all for being part of, and helping to make such a great Grasmere School Community
