A warm welcome from the Chair of Governors


On behalf of the governors of East Wickham Primary Academy it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our school’s website for the 2023/24 school year. We are very proud that last year saw the school achieve outstanding academic results in both Phonics and Year 6 SATS, as well as the ongoing development and teaching of the wider curriculum. We should all be proud of what our pupils have achieved and continue to support them in their work and personal development during their time at East Wickham.


We have continued to maintain the excellent standards of attainment and behaviour that we have become used to at East Wickham, as well as seeing the attendance levels of our pupils improve.  Attendance is so critical in ensuring that our children both maximise their academic performance, and also form and maintain strong friendship groups among the rest of their peer groups. 


As governors we continue to provide support and oversight of the school, working closely with both the school leadership and staff, and also the TKAT leadership team, to make sure that our children receive the best possible education in a safe and nurturing environment.  We are hoping to increase the number and diversity of our governor board this year and hope that parents will apply when we start the search for new governors.


As governors we are always keen to hear your views and feedback on the school so please do feel free to contact me at any time through the school office.  I will also be attending various school events throughout the year and be on hand occasionally at drop off or pick up times and will try to speak to as many of you as possible.


Thank you for your continued support for the school. The staff will always offer the best possible opportunities for learning at the school but we know that the children will only maximise their potential with the support and guidance of our parents and carers outside the school.


I wish everyone at EWPA and all our associated families and supporters the very best for the new school year.



Very best wishes


Mike Jeffers

Chair of Governors, EWPA
