Letter from the Chair

A Message From The Chair


It gives me great pleasure as Chair of the Governing Board at Prestolee Primary to welcome you to our school. My youngest son attends Prestolee and I am absolutely committed to doing all I can to help provide the very best education and support for all of our children


At Prestolee Primary we recognise that to achieve the best experience and most successful outcomes for our children, is to maintain a partnership between the schools teaching and support team, parents, governors and of course the children. We want to create an environment where every child has the chance to shine and aspires to be the very best they can, and is prepared for a future of possibilities. At Prestolee we will all work together to ensure that every child is a writer, a reader and is numerate.


It is the role of the Governing Board to ensure that the school provides a first class education for every child in our care. We are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, for ensuring that the budget is managed prudently and for providing support to our excellent teaching and support team. Our school provides a broad, balanced curriculum aimed at developing the whole child and offering many enriching opportunities during their time at school. Prestolee is the Lead school of the Prestolee Multi-Academy Trust bringing increased capacity and collaboration to drive forward our determination to give all our children the best possible start in their educational life, and help them to become confident, well rounded individuals.


The Prestolee Governing Board is made up of staff, community and parent governors, each bringing a wide range of knowledge and experience to the role. It is important that the voice of parents is represented and our parent governors provide this vital link. We as governors are always keen to seek the views of parents, so please come and chat to us when you see us at school, in the playground or at any school function. If you wish to contact me directly, please do not hesitate to do so on the below email address.


I hope that you benefit from being part of the Prestolee Primary community and that your children are happy and enjoy attending this wonderful school.


Chair of Governors:
