At Warter Church of England Primary School we have two Foundation Governors who are appointed by the York Diocese.

Mrs Freda Bailey

Mrs Cathy Henworth

The role of the Foundation Governor is to ensure that the school’s distinctive Christian character and values lie at the heart of the school in its development of the whole child. They ensure that key events in the Church year are celebrated by the school and embedded in the everyday life of the school community. They monitor impact of provision and talk to the children and teachers about the ethos of the school. As Foundation Governors they articulate the Christian vision of the school and oversee the ‘well-being’ of the whole school community.

Canon Rodney Nicholson

Canon Rodney Nicholson regularly leads Worship in school and at St. James’ church in the village.
