Our Governors

Thank you for visiting our website and, as Chair of the Governing Body, I would like to thank you for taking the time and welcome you to the school.

The Governors and I are proud of our school and the level of commitment the Principal, Senior Management Team, Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Support Staff dedicate to the welfare and education of the pupils. As members of the Governing Body, we as a team, support and challenge the school leadership to improve and maintain the highest of standards.

If you are considering sending your child to Daresbury Primary School, I would encourage all new parents to arrange with Mrs Roberts, the Principal, to visit the school during the normal school day and the see this little school which makes a big difference in operation.
