Welcome Letter from the Chair of Governors

Welcome to Four Lanes Community Junior School

I hope that this website provides you with both useful information and a flavour of our school.

It is important that as parents, you feel welcome. A good relationship between school and home helps to build a child's confidence and assists their development in school. We depend upon the co-operation, support and involvement of parents. At Four Lanes Community Junior School we strive to foster a relationship that doesn't end at the school gate, and to develop a good understanding between home, staff and governors for the benefit of our children.

The children at our school have a happy, safe and caring environment in which to learn. We aim to make our children confident, sensitive to others, interested in the world around them and prepared for the challenges ahead.

Our team of Governors provide support to the school in a number of ways, using our experience from various backgrounds. Governors are appointed to ensure that school's performance is evaluated and continuously improves, to provide the strategic direction for the future that is both visionary and realistic and to ensure legal obligations are met. We are here to support and encourage the Headteacher and her staff so that children have access to an enriched education and the opportunities they deserve. Most of all we are there because we care for our school and want it to succeed.

I sincerely hope that your children enjoy their time at Four Lanes Community Junior School.
