Local Governing Body

On behalf of the Local Governing Body of St. Philip’s I am pleased to welcome you to our school website.

Getting the choice of school right for your child is an important decision. I am sure you will share my views that the following are the most important requirements from a Catholic primary school.

We want our children at St. Philip’s to:

  • Have a Catholic education.
  • Feel safe and be well supported.
  • Be happy in school.
  • Be the best they can be in their faith development, academic achievements, and social skills.

I know that you will find all of these at St. Philip’s. I commend to you the hard working and caring staff who are so ably led by the Headteacher Mrs. Hinton. Staff and governors will continue to work hard together to ensure we fulfil our school mission statement: ‘Learning and working together through Christ.’

I look forward to working with you and hearing from you as we carry out our joint responsibilities of nurturing the future faith citizens of our country.

Yours sincerely,

Stephen Godber
