Welcome from Governors

Dear All, 

I am privileged to be the Chair of Governors for the two secondary provisions within Brunel Academies Trust (Brunel) which include Churchward School and Uplands School. Being a parent of a young person with SEND, and also Chair of the Swindon Down’s Syndrome Group, I have gained a wealth of knowledge regarding SEND.

Membership of the Local Governing Committee is varied and includes parents/carers, staff and co-opted members from the local community. Appointed Governors have different skills which is important and necessary to enable the Governing Body to effectively support the school to ensure that every child and young person gets the very best education.

We are always looking at ways to improve the way we work to support the schools and we would like to hear from you about anything that we could do better.

Please do not hesitate to contact me on email kwest@brunel.org.uk or via the School Office if I can be of further help to you.

Kim West
