On behalf of the Governors of Overchurch Junior, I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to our school. We understand that the decision about where to entrust the care of your child and their education is extremely important, and we thank you for choosing Overchurch Junior School. We pride ourselves on the nurture and care we provide for our pupils, and that our pupils are happy and enjoy learning, and are part of a vibrant and caring school community.

The prospectus and website are designed to help you to find out lots of information about the school as well as how you can play a key role in ensuring your children get the best out of their time at our school.

Our school works very hard with high expectations of all our staff, school governors, children and parents.

By working together, we can excel. We have an excellent environment in which to learn academic and creative subjects but also to embed our school values of respect, believe and achieve. We believe that this underpins and supports how we care and nurture all the children in our care.

The Governors have regular meetings with the Head Teacher and senior leaders, and all Governors are able to maintain close relationships with the school through regular visits.

Governors have an important role to play in the Governance and Management of how schools are run. The Governing Body has a range of duties including helping to set the overall strategic direction of Overchurch Junior School.

Together, the Governors act as a critical friend to the school ensuring that the school is suitably challenged as well as supported so that ALL the children can achieve the best of their ability.

It is a privilege to be Chair of Governors, with a devoted team who work hard to share their expertise in helping to guide our school forward.

We wish your child every success and happiness at Overchurch Juniors.


Julie McGettrick
