Gillshill Primary

I am very happy to be the Chair of Governors for Gillshill. I have worked in and with schools for over 40 years and just love the fact that the children at the school are always central to every decision made. Their safety, well-being and educational achievement are of paramount importance to every adult in the school. I have two grandchildren, one of whom attends the school, and I am often on the school run!                                                                                                                                   Sara Shaw, Chair of Governors.
