Ramsbury Primary School

School Governors

Welcome from the Chair of Governors

It is a privilege to be the new chair of the Governing Body of this wonderful school which has recently retained its Outstanding rating from Ofsted.

Pupils who attend our school are given a strong rounded education, enabling them to be confident young people when they move into secondary education and then into their adult lives. The school excels in sport, music and art, as well as in all academic subjects, and we offer a safe and caring learning environment putting our children at the centre of everything we do.

Our Head Teacher, Miss Price, and her colleagues know every child in their care and ensure that each is nurtured and well looked after while at school.

We also know that our parents are keen to see their children progress and we always encourage a healthy dialogue between parents and teachers throughout their time with us.

We hope your children will be very happy here.
