These aims have been derived from feedback from our parent questionnaire alongside discussions with other stakeholders of the school. The specific objectives, which further these aims, will be found in the subject policies and are integral to schemes of work and teacher planning. The Governors of Axbridge Church of England First School are committed to supporting the staff in their work to achieve these aims. The Governors provide leadership and support to the school. They are a ‘critical friend’, giving support to the ethos of the school and providing strategic vision, in order for the school to achieve its aims.
