On 1st September 2021, Gresham Village School and Nursery joined Synergy Multi-Academy Trust a local academy trust, comprising three high schools, ten primary schools and an all through primary and secondary school. Our CEO is Robert Martlew.
Gresham Village Primary School continues to have its own Governing Body which is currently made up of nine Governors. The Governors are like a board of directors. They work in partnership with the Head teacher to make decisions about how the school is run in order to improve the quality of education and ensure pupil progress.
The Governing Body has a range of duties and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement including setting targets for pupil attainment, monitoring the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, appointing staff, reviewing staff performance and pay and many more.
The full Governing Body meets seven times a year to ratify decisions, review progress and to discuss the Head teacher’s report, which covers all aspects of the school’s activities.
Governors endeavour to visit the school regularly to discuss matters with staff and parents and to meet the children. The school secretary has contact details for the chair of governors and the parent governors.
