Welcome from the Chair of Governors

At Cherry Tree our aim is to provide an outstanding, rounded education for our pupils whilst ensuring that every child achieves their potential and thrives during their time at our school. We take great pride in the nurturing and caring  environment that we create for all our children. Safeguarding our pupils is at the heart of everything we do. We believe passionately that this enables our pupils to become happy, confident and resilient individuals who are ready to tackle their onward learning journey.

I am immensely proud to assume the role of Chair of Governors at Cherry Tree and, after 10 years as a governor at the school, I look forward to continuing the successful work of our Governing Board. We, as a board, will work hard to ensure that Mrs Graham and her team have the resources and support they need to continue to provide an outstanding learning environment for our children.

PTA recognition

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the PTA for their continued hard work. Their contribution to the school is valued immensely by the Governing Board and everybody at Cherry Tree. The PTA’s fund raising has become increasingly vital to providing some of our extra well-loved activities, such as music classes and specialist resources. Without this support, these life enriching activities simply wouldn’t be possible.

Thanks to our parents

I would also like to thank our parents, for their continued support whether that be by supporting their child’s learning at home, by giving time to the school through volunteering or by supporting school events and financially. I believe that our strong community spirit gives us a unique ability to achieve the very best for our children.

Facing finance challenges head on

Whilst school finances continue to be a real challenge, and there are significant government education policy changes to consider and address, I am confident that Mrs Graham and her team, supported by the Governing Board, will rise to this challenge to ensure the happy, enthusiastic and successful environment as Cherry Tree continues to thrive.
