Chair of Governors welcome

Hello and welcome to our school website. On here you will find a wealth of information about our school, our community and links to other sites which we think you will find helpful and informative.
I would like to introduce myself, I am Greg Entwistle, the chair of the school governing body, I live in Whitworth and am a parishioner of St.Johns Church. My children attended our school but have now moved on and my wife is a class teacher at our school. I became a foundation (church appointed) governor in 2003 and was asked to take over as chair in 2005, I have held the position since then and have seen the school grow and expand both in size and local respect since then. I try to spend as much time as possible in school and consider myself to be approachable and visible.
At SJSM we pride ourselves on our caring ethos based around the core Christian values,
Faith in God
Self-control and Moderation
Honesty and Integrity
Kindness and Compassion
Contentment and Thankfulness
Patience and Perseverance
Peace and Humility
Loyalty and Commitment
We believe that following these values helps children learn in a safe, caring and loving environment as children of God.
Our team of committed staff work extremely hard to ensure that every child in our care reaches their maximum potential and we offer a whole range of extra-curricular activities and clubs to enrich their education away from the formal classroom environment.
We are proud of the links we have forged with our community and other local schools and encourage our pupils to become involved in their local area which sets them up to become good citizens in the future.
As a voluntary aided school the governing body is responsible for the smooth and efficient running of the school and to spend the school budget in a productive, value for money manner to provide a safe and efficient learning environment for our children, A list of our governors can be found on a separate page, please feel free to raise any queries you may have about any aspect of school life with myself or one of the other governors.
We hold regular open days for prospective students/parents, please contact the school office for details of our next open day, however we are always pleased to show you round our school at other times if the open day dates are not convenient.
Thank you for your interest in our school.
