As Chair of the Governing Body it gives me great pleasure to contribute to Ballasalla
Primary School Prospectus. I am privileged to be a governor in this school. This school takes justifiable pride in that all staff, the governing body and pupils are dedicated to making this school a place where each and every child will flourish and achieve, where each young person is a known individual. A recent external review graded us as good with many aspects of excellence; a high accolade.
The governing body have overall responsibility for the control and direction of the school. We welcome and endorse the creative curriculum. The Governing Body has a close and extremely good relationship with the Head teacher and staff. We work together to ensure happy children striving for excellence.
Ballasalla Primary School is a school where each child is an individual, where each child is encouraged and guided to reach their full potential; not just academically but physically and socially. We are a community school with strong links to the local area but also with a wider input into the extended community and our local Secondary School. With pride I can say what our pupils seek knowledge, achieve academically, play successfully and are socially aware.
I hope that you will place your child in our school; we hope that it will be a wonderful learning journey for both you and your child. My son very happily attended Ballasalla Primary and I know it to be a school with dedicated staff and happy, inquisitive children.
I thank you for taking the time to read our prospectus and I hope that I will have the pleasure of meeting you in the future.
