Welcome from Chair of Governors

On behalf of the Local Governing Committee (LGC) welcome to Churchward School.  My name is Derek Fry but everyone calls me Del. I have a real interest in SEN as my adult son Matt was diagnosed Autistic at two years of age. Over the last twenty or so years I have been a governor of four special schools, three of which are in Swindon. As chair of one school I played a small part in the school achieving it’s first outstanding Ofsted judgement.

Other members of the LGC are experts in SEN including a former Headteacher, a former Deputy Headteacher and the Head of Swindon’s ASC Outreach Service. We have parent and staff representatives on the LGC as well as experts in construction and school governance.  Our collective aim is to make Churchward School the very best secondary school for students with ASC in the South West. 

If you would like to talk to me about Churchward School please feel free to email me at chair@churchwardschool.org
