Mr Chris Eley

May I on behalf of the governing body extend my welcome to Devonshire Primary School. My name is Chris Eley and I became a member of the governing body in 1999 while my two girls were at Devonshire. Time has moved on and I now have two granddaughters at Devonshire. I have been chair of the governing body since 2004 and feel fortunate to be able to work with such a supportive governing body, dedicated school staff and great pupils.

All of the work of the governing body is underpinned by the dedication and excellent work carried out by our Headteacher, Fiona Oastler and her three Assistant Headteachers. Although our role as governors is to support them, they contribute equally to the work that we do. We support the school in pursuing its key objectives, ensuring the highest standards of teaching and learning are maintained. We also fully support the PSA (parent staff association), which carries out a vital fund-raising role through organising fabulous social events for the school community.

I, along with other governors come into school regularly and attend school social events. Please feel free to talk to us at these times or otherwise contact us via the school office.

From time to time there are vacancies on the governing body for governors. If you are interested in volunteering to become a governor please speak to any member of the governing body who will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Training for new governors is available free of charge.
