Local Governing Body

Welcome to the Governor Section of the Chestnuts Primary School Website. Here you will find information about the constitution and work of the local governing body.  

The governing body itself is made up of volunteers who work with the School Leadership Team to develop and monitor the strategic performance of the school. This is achieved by working with the school team, sharing a passion to see that the children do the best they can, in a safe, happy, and productive environment.  

The most recent OFSTED inspection resulted in Chestnuts gaining a rating of Good. This was a just reward for all the immense efforts of the team to provide the best opportunities for the children.  

We think Chestnuts is an amazing place, with an amazing team.  

Please feel free to share your own views and ideas about Chestnuts. If you wish to contact Wayne Scott, Chair of Governors you may do so by sending a letter in a sealed envelope (marked for his attention) via the school office, or you can email: wscott@iftl.co.uk.
