White Notley is a Church of England (Controlled) Primary School. We aim to provide the best possible education for each child within the context of a caring Christian community.  We were judged as outstanding at our most recent church school inspection.  We have 111 pupils, with an annual admission of 15.  We maintain high standards of attainment as well as giving a broad choice of opportunities through daily extra-curricular activities.  There are currently 14 clubs held each week.  Approximately 50% of our pupils receive instrumental lessons on a second instrument (all pupils are taught music through learning the descant recorder).  All our planning and learning is based on a skills curriculum, which we have developed over a number of years, and much is through enquiry-based learning.  We are linked with a school in Kenya, which is a strong partnership involving reciprocal visits.

Governing Body Statement

The Governors are responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. We aim to ensure that your children are attending a successful school which supports their wellbeing and provides them with good education. We set the strategic direction of the school, we challenge and support by monitoring, reviewing and evaluating and we ensure accountability by working with the Headteacher regarding the school’s performance.

The main work of the Governing Body is carried out through three main committees: Finance and Personnel - Curriculum, Standards and Monitoring - Premises, Health and Safety. The Governing Body meet once per term. During these meetings the many policies which relate to all aspects of the life and work of the school are discussed and agreed. We also discuss, approve and monitor the School Development Plan – the Asset Management plan, which tells us what is happening now and sets out our plans for the Future. The Headteacher keeps us very well informed about all aspects of school life. We also visit the school on a regular basis for monitoring visits.

The Governing Body is responsible for the appointment and performance management of the Headteacher who, in turn, is responsible for the implementation of the policies and the day to day running of the school, including managing all the staff.
