Chair of Governor's welcome

At South Petherwin Primary School we are proud to offer a caring family atmosphere putting an emphasis on the whole child.  It is a privilege to be Chair of Governors in a school where a team of dedicated staff members work together to create such an inspiring learning environment for their pupils.


We want all our children to develop to their full potential academically and socially, so that they become responsible and caring adults in their later lives.


The role of the Board of Governors is to work closely with the Headteacher and staff to provide the very best education that we can for the children of our school. We are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the school, for ensuring
that the budget is managed prudently and for supporting our excellent staff.


We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and aim for enjoyment in learning. The staff are
experienced and dedicated and work in partnership with parents and children so that we can
provide the children with the best education possible.  We work closely with neighbouring schools who are part of the Launceston Rural Learning Trust, collaborating in order to improve our provision.


The South Petherwin PTFA are very active and organise a variety of fun activities and events
throughout the school year. The funds raised help to provide the children with as many
experiences as possible.


We operate an ‘open door’ policy where parents, friends and governors are always welcome to come into school.


If you have not already experienced our school, please call to arrange a visit and a
member of our staff will be delighted to show you around.


Please enjoy looking around our website and if you wish to contact me please email me,
