A warm welcome to St Paulinus School from all the governors that represent the school. Our Governing Body has members varying from Teachers, Support Staff, Parents and Members of the Parochial Parish Council at St Paulinus Church.

Everyone on the Governing Body provides their time freely and with diverse backgrounds ranging from education through to IT, providing both the balance between the needs of the children and the needs of the school moving forward. Our aim is to support and challenge the school while committing to ensure that every child has the capability to reach their full potential.

Within the community, Mr Tharby has been a governor at St Paulinus School for over 7 years, as well as providing IT skills to St Paulinus Church as well. His daughter still attends St Paulinus and is in her final year while his son attends Beths Grammar School after many enjoyable years at St Paulinus.

We look forward to continuing to support the School, the Leadership Team and Staff now and in the future continuing the work to improve the school for all.

Many Thanks, Mr Daniel Tharby
Chair of Governors – St Paulinus CE Primary School.
