Message from the Chair of Governors

Shapla Primary School is a successful community school with a uniquely warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff work hard to provide a safe, stimulating and happy environment in which children develop confidence and a respect for themselves and others which will enable them to become independent learners and collaborative and motivated citizens.


The Governors include parents, staff and members of the local community and are committed to maintaining and improving the ethos and standards of the school. The full Governing Body meets at least once a term and we have Resources and Standards Committees which also meet at least termly. We welcome input from parents and organise regular opportunities for parents to meet Governors.


If you would like to learn more about what we do, or to discuss any aspect of the school, please contact me through the school office.
