“ Whatever you do in word or deed,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
Colossians 3:17

The Governors

As Chair of Governors I am very proud to be associated with the hardworking staff, both teaching and non-teaching as well as the members of the Governing Body who work extremely hard behind the scenes. This is a particularly exciting time in the life of the school with the recent appointment of our new Head Teacher, Ms Rachel Jones and together we will be striving to build upon the solid foundation we already have to push the school to even greater heights.

Whilst not responsible for the day to day management, our strategic remit means we take a keen interest in all aspects of school life – the welfare of pupils and staff, the curriculum, pupil achievement, Safeguarding, Buildings and Finance.

The Governors meet together each term with much of the work taking place in committees. We receive information from the Director of Education, Hounslow and the London Diocese Board for Schools which seeks to keep us up to date with the ever changing statutory duties of Governors as well as inform us of the different initiatives designed to support and enhance the work that we do. The Head Teacher also reports on all aspects of the school and is supported and challenged by Governors to ensure the ambitions for the school are being fully realised in line with the School Improvement Plan.

The Governors are proud to be part of this thriving school and are committed to working in partnership with the Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure that the drive and passion for even greater success continues. 

Stephanie Ajayi, Chair of Governors

The Blue School is a thriving, outstanding primary school which continues to offer every child the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential in a nurturing Christian environment.
