Message from our Governors

East Stour has a very clear vision, that focuses around ensuring the aspirations of pupils are high. The school is led and run by dedicated staff who have the children at the heart of what they do and the decisions that are made.


As a governing body, it is our responsibility to support and challenge the school, enabling them to achieve their objectives and have the highest level of impact on the pupils and community it serves.To ensure we can achieve this, our governing body is made up of a range of individuals that bring a variety of skill sets, knowledge and experience with them. From people working in education to staff
and parent governors and those that work within the local community, it is key that the governance is strong, supportive and most importantly, impactful.
A big part of the governance approach includes regular monitoring visits that are focused on different areas of the school’s function. The Governors will meet four times a year to discuss the findings from these reviews and look at progress against the school’s plan. The governors also receive regular Headteacher updates and feedback on any in-year progress.
It is key that as a Governing body we are open, approachable and transparent. As a result, we welcome feedback, comments and suggestions from the school community.
