Governors’ Vision:


By 2026, Gillibrand Primary School will truly be a learning-centred school that strives to nurture the dreams and talents of all its learners and helps them to be the best they can be. To that end:


  • Governors will ensure that all systems are designed to inspire learners and equip them with the confidence and skills required to thrive in an ever-changing world.
  • Governors will support the school and monitor its effectiveness as it works towards fulfilling its stated vision, namely, to nurture children’s dreams, to enable children to be happy and to give children the confidence to believe they can succeed.
