Introducing Inkberrow First School Governing Body

 

We are an active Board of Governors who support Inkberrow First School in a variety of ways. Overall, we seek to be a ‘critical friend’, so as to ensure that our local community school is supported and challenged in its vital task of educating and preparing children for life in 21st century society. Each year we produce an Annual Report summarising the activities that have been undertaken, and our latest report (for the academic year 2017/18) is available here for your information.

 

On the 1st August 2017 Inkberrow First School became a Founder Member of the Avonreach Academy Trust (AAT), along with Cherry Orchard First School, Norton Juxta-Kempsey First School, and Pershore High School.  The IFS Governing Body remains unchanged following the formation of AAT, and is composed as follows:
