Naphill and Walters Ash School
Message from the Co-chairs of Governors
A school should be an aspirational place. Welcome to Naphill and Walters Ash School. We are ambitious for every child. We value all our children and encourage them to believe in themselves and reach their full potential.
Marc, I and the rest of the Governing Body, work closely with the Head Teacher and all the staff to set high standards and expectations in teaching, learning and extracurricular activities for all our children and the highest standard of behaviour across the school.
Our ambition is that your child leaves Naphill having achieved the very best that they are able to. Partnerships are vital to achieving that ambition and this is where as parents and carers you can help your child.
Our continued feedback from the Head Teacher, staff and from other Governing Bodies is that reading at home is absolutely vital to children’s education. It may appear mundane, but time spent with your child reading or doing homework is never wasted. Reading is a cornerstone of education. From reading comes comprehension, not just in English, but in ALL subjects taught across the curriculum as well as in the wider world.
10 to 20 minutes each day, reading to or with your child, checking their understanding of what they read, encouraging them to explore subjects more deeply. As well as reading, helping them learn spelling and times tables will have a positive impact that will help them make steps towards their aspirations.
