The Context of our Federation

Welcome to our website


I've been on the Governing Body since 2011 and it has been really exciting to see both schools in the Federation go from strength to strength, and to watch the children at William Morris and Singlegate thrive.

As governors it is our responsibility to support the school staff team to deliver an outstanding education for growing numbers of children. We scrutinise standards and outcomes for the children, act as a sounding board, oversee budgets and work with the Senior Leadership Team on strategic planning.

Our role is to ensure that all our children - our sporty children, our gifted children, our children who require extra help, our children who get the pupil premium, our musical children, our creative children and all the other unique children at our schools get the very best education, and have the very best experience they can possibly have at school. I am incredibly proud of the children in our schools, the staff who work so hard for them and the governors who support them.


The Governing Body of Singlegate and William Morris Primary School Federation

Governors hold an important public office and their identity should be known to their school and wider communities. Governing Bodies therefore publish on their website information about their members.

The following shows each member of the Governing Body and their category of Governor, terms of office, Committees they serve on and any positions of responsibility.
