Welcome to Shobnall Primary & Nursery School

A message from the Chair of the Local Governing Body

I would like to welcome you to Shobnall Primary & Nursery School. We strive to provide a happy, successful and busy primary school where we place significant emphasis on raising expectations and aspirations.

As a school, we take great pride in the fact that we place children at the centre of all we do. We focus on both their academic and personal development and ensure that they see, and strive to reach, their full potential in both.

We endeavour to create a positive ethos by celebrating the achievements of all, children and staff alike. We provide a safe, secure learning environment and our children are taught to respect and value their peers and adults.

The standards and expectations we have at Shobnall Primary & Nursery School are extremely high.

We are proud of our school community and our involvement within the JTMAT. We like to work in partnership with our parents to inspire the children to believe in themselves and to be the very best they can be.

We encourage our parents to provide support for both their children and our school and as such, involve them as much as possible in school life. We recognise that parents are a vital part of the whole team who all work towards promoting the child’s learning and their overall wellbeing.

The Headteacher, and the Senior Leadership team, have a very positive working relationship with their local governing body and, through the provision of high quality information, and by readily accepting challenge, there is a relationship of mutual trust, respect and confidence between them and the Governors.

The school adopts an ‘open door’ policy encouraging parents and other stakeholders to share in celebrations and also raise any concerns.

Parents, staff, governors and all other stakeholders are actively encouraged to take every opportunity to take part in the life of school and its wider role within the community.

We believe that ‘Happy Children are Inspired Learners’.

The role of School Governor is voluntary and carries with it a number of responsibilities. If you are interested in becoming a School Governor, please contact myself, the Chair of Governors, via the school office at shb-office@jtmat.co.uk.

Mr G. Dennis
Chair of Local Governing Body
