I would like to welcome you on behalf of the Governing Body of Lane End Primary School and thank you for taking the time to look at our website.
The vision for Lane End Primary School is to ensure that all staff have the highest expectations of themselves and the pupils in their care to ensure all children achieve their full potential in a secure and friendly environment. 
We want Lane End Primary School to be the school of choice for all parents within Lane End and the surrounding area. This will put the school at the heart of a community, ensuring that everyone is committed to working together to provide the best possible life chances for the young people and families that the school serves. 
At Lane End Primary School we take pride in providing a personalised education where staff know the children well and give them time and support to explore subjects and develop deep understanding. 
We want all children to strive for academic, creative, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum. We celebrate perseverance, resilience and risk taking, ensuring children welcome challenge and are not frightened to make mistakes. We encourage children to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning, so they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and respond to quality feedback. Children are praised for hard work, determination and having a positive attitude.
It is our aim for all children to leave Lane End Primary School as independent learners with self-belief and an abiding respect for others. We aim to instil a lifelong love for learning and a strong grounding for future success.
As governors, it is our duty to support and question in order to ensure that the high standard of education provided by the teachers and staff is maintained and that the quest for improvement never stands still. 
Our school ethos is based on a positive approach to supporting behaviour for learning which encourages all children to be responsible and respectful.  This is the responsibility of all adults on the school premises, who by their work and their manner, should at all times seek to promote this approach.
Excellent governance means that we as governors embrace this ethos too and help the staff in any way we can to uphold it.
At Lane End Primary School we operate two core committees:
Finance and Administration
Curriculum and Standards
Through these forums the governors are able to monitor, challenge and keep abreast of all school business. 

If you are interested in becoming a governor at Lane End Primary School, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the Chair of Governors via the School Office.

I have been a Governor at Lane End Primary since our two sons first attended the school. They have now been through university. In that time, I have gained a lot of experience and seen many changes. As the Office Manager at the school, I have been involved with the finances for many years. I strongly believe that, as a school, we have a duty to make best use of the ever diminishing school budget to give the pupils the best education we can. This has been challenging at times but also very rewarding. I live locally and enjoy being involved with the local village school.

I am looking forward to being an instrumental part of the success of the school by informing the strategic direction. and getting to know each and every child.

I am a new governor since September 2016. I have lived in Lane End for 14 years and recently (2 years ago) started up my own business in Childcare.  Through my business, I have a connection with Lane End Primary School for the children I care for. During this time, I have noticed how dedicated the school are to provide and improve the standard of education for the children who attend. I asked to become a governor to help and assist wherever I can to making this an even better school for your children! I am passionate about the standard of education children receive and if I can play just a small part in making Lane End  Primary School a great school for your children, then I will.
