School Governors

St. Aidan’s is a Church of England Aided School. Our aim is to provide a balanced and high-quality education suitable to the varying needs, abilities and talents of our pupils and to do that in an openly Christian environment, based on the love of God and the love of each other as ourselves. Therefore the parish clergy work closely with the staff and children, taking an active part in the life of the school. We cannot, however, do this on our own. If we are to succeed we need the active support and involvement of parents and guardians. We therefore encourage you to help us create a happy, caring atmosphere of love, respect for each other, co-operation and trust. The staff work extremely hard to provide a stimulating and caring environment in which the children may work happily to achieve their full potential and respond in a positive way to the demands made on them at school, in the home, in the community in which they live now and in the future. Please help us to help your children.
