Message from the Chair of Governors 


The Governors recognise that the school must constantly strive to improve and innovate to ensure the best possible outcomes for its pupils. The Governing Body is heavily involved in the creation of the School’s Improvement Plan and acts as a ‘critical friend’ in all matters. The Governors are part of the leadership of the school and are integral to strategic planning. Governors both support and challenge the Headteacher and senior staff to ensure that the school performs as well as it should and that all pupils have the very best opportunity to learn & grow.


Working very closely with the Headteacher, the Governing Body is ultimately responsible for the curriculum delivery, the school’s finances, personnel matters and also maintaining the school premises. The Headteacher and staff are responsible for the planning, teaching and monitoring of the National Curriculum and the day-to-day running of the school. The Governors, Headteacher and staff work in partnership to promote the aims of the school.


In short, the Governing Body’s aim is to ensure Acton CEVC Primary School provides its pupils the best educational start in life helping them to become happy, confident individuals who are given every opportunity to reach their potential.


If you have any questions, comments, feedback or general observations concerning our Governing Body and would like to talk to me, then please contact me through the School Office. My school email address is at the top of this page. 



Mr. Barry Moult 



Mr Jonathan Gray - Headteacher

I have been a governor since November 2016 and have worked at the school since September 2014.

Prior to being appointed Headteacher my role was Deputy Headteacher and assessment coordinator, having worked in primary schools of various sizes and differing locations over my career.

As a member of staff at the school, I have a keen interest in the ensuring the school is governed in the best possible way to ensure the children are given every opportunity to develop and make progress.

Being the assessment coordinator, my role on the Governing Body was concerned with the attainment and progress of the children. This will become more important in my wider role as Headteacher as I prepare reports which outline the latest strengths and areas for development of the school for my fellow governors and answer any questions that may arise.
