The Governors

On behalf of the governing body, I would like to welcome you and your child to Oliver Thomas. We are honoured to be working closely with the school and its families.

We believe that young children deserve the best possible start in life and know that if we work in partnership with parents and families that we can make a big difference. We recognise that you are your child’s first educator and together we can support your child’s ongoing health, wellbeing, and future learning.

“Our job is too difficult and too beautiful to do alone.”
