Chair of Governors: Mrs Kim Fisher


“Building the bridge to success”



Dear parents/carers and friends

May we wish a warm welcome for the academic year 2017-2018 to Parents/Carers and Friends of the two schools, old and new. We look forward to working in close partnership with you for the benefit of your children.

As your newly elected Chair and Vice Chair, on behalf of the Governing Body, we would like to welcome you to All Saints’ Church of England Federation, Hessle where our vision is that every child be Happy, Motivated, Confident, Creative and Independent.

Across both of our schools staff, parents, children and governors work as a team, building the "Bridge to Success". We aim to provide a broad education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. As part of our Christian ethos we encourage and promote the core values of Forgiveness, Thankfulness, Courage and Community.

We are proud of our children and have high expectations for both their academic achievement and their ability to develop an understanding of their place in the community; growing into thoughtful, caring and effective contributors to the world in which they live.

It is well documented that changes in educational are frequent and significant and you may be aware that in the last few years both the Curriculum and means of assessing children have changed. You will have chances to find out more throughout the year.

The Governing Body is ultimately responsible; though not directly involved on a day to day basis, for the effective running of the school. We are here to support and encourage Miss Wood (Executive Headteacher) and all school staff, to ensure that money is spent wisely and that the children benefit fully from a rich and relevant education both within the buildings and beyond.

Please take advantage of the many opportunities outlined on your School Events Calendar to come into the schools and share your children's experiences.

We are at present in need of two new Parent Governors who would bring a fresh perspective and energy to our team. If you are interested in finding out more please ask at the office of either school or ring us on the school number. It is a privilege to work with and for the children of All Saints Federation and we look forward to meeting you at social events.

With our best wishes,

Kim Fisher and Georgina Boyns
