Puttenham Church of England Infant School

Puttenham Church of England Infant School


Welcome from the Chair of Governors

On behalf of all the Governors of Puttenham Church of England Infant School, I would like to extend a warm welcome and take this opportunity to explain our responsibilities.


As a Governing Body, our role is to set the Vision and strategic direction of the school, to hold the school to account in meeting these and to oversee the financial performance.


As such, we have a Governing Body with a range of skills and experience to enable us to input into the life, values and community of the school, in order that Puttenham can continue to provide the best educational experience for every child, to enable each individual to be the very best they can be.


The Governing Body meet every term as well as having committees for Resources & Finance and Curriculum & Data.


I hope these pages go some way to giving you an insight into the caring and happy Christian Community we have here at Puttenham and if you have any specific questions or anything you wish to discuss, please contact me using the form below.
