Welcome to our Governors’ section.
The GROW, LEARN, FLOURISH FEDERATION
We share our governing body and Executive Head Teacher with our federation school - St Mary's Credenhill.
The formal Federation between St Mary's Primary and Much Birch Primary schools started in September 2019. The Federation is called "The Grow, Learn, Flourish Herefordshire Partnership", however, both schools retain their original titles.
There is much to celebrate regarding the success of both schools. Early Years, KS1 and KS2 results were mainly well above national levels, which is a tribute to the work of our Executive Head and the staff of the schools across the Partnership.
In October 2019 St Mary's was graded “Good” in their Church SIAMS inspection and Much Birch was also graded “Good” in their recent OFSTED inspection. In November 2022 Much Birch was graded ‘Good’ with elements of ‘Excellent’ in their church SIAMS – our most recent Ofsted (2018) was also ‘Good’. We have the chance to build on these inspections to enable our children to flourish in their education.
There will be termly full Governing Body meetings and there will also be termly meetings for the Curriculum & Standards Committee, which will cover both schools. We have decided to retain separate committees for Resources and Wellbeing who also meet termly.
