Appeal for Governors

Cuddington and Dinton C of E School is a huge credit and asset to the catchment area that it serves – which includes the villages of Chearsley, Nether Winchedon, Upton and Ford as well as Cuddington and Dinton themselves.

In addition to the clear role that staff and parents play, much of the success of the school is down to the part that the Board of Governors also plays. In the case of our school the governors have played a pivotal role, along with staff and parents, in bringing about the successful changes that have taken place over the last 10-15 years and before that as well.

Today we are very fortunate to have a highly dedicated, qualified and focused group of people who make up our Governing Body. We are an unusually large one (mainly as a result of the merger) and we benefit from the fact our full complement is 16 members; many schools of our size only have 12.
There is, rightly, a steady turnover of governors as a result of terms of office finishing, parents moving on and staff leaving. This is very healthy and quite normal but it does mean that we are frequently seeking appropriate nominations for new governors. And we are especially keen to have parishioners who do not necessarily already have a direct link with the school e.g. are not current parents or members of staff.

This is a hugely important and very rewarding role so please give serious thought about considering it. If you are interested in finding out more about the role of a governor please contact the Headteacher, Mrs Kim Price, on 01844 291206 or via email – or the Chair of Governors, Mr Giles Ecott via
