Welcome to the Governance section.
As the Chair of Governors, it gives me great pleasure in welcoming you to Corsham Regis Primary Academy. I lead a highly committed and active governing body who place inclusivity, care and wellbeing of pupils and staff at the heart of everything we do.
Our Vision for the school is to:
The governing body is comprised of people from all different backgrounds, from education to the private sector. It is our job to provide Strategic direction and leadership to the school and to challenge and support Mrs Symons and the Senior Leadership Team. The care and support the school offers pupils to learn in a safe and vibrant environment is central to our ethos at Regis; something I am immensely proud of.
All schools are measured on the amount of academic, social and emotional progress pupils make and it’s clear that children’s progress in any school is heavily influenced by the support they receive at home as well as at school. As parents and carers, you are very much part of our school community and we encourage you to get as involved as possible. Please reach out to the school if you would like to get more involved, either as a governor, supporting PTA events or any other capacity you can.
