Ermington and Ugborough Primary Schools established the Beacon Federation in 2011 and now work collaboratively to provide an excellent education for the children in our local area, preserving the best traditions of each school while taking advantage of new opportunities together.  I am proud to work with a dedicated and highly professional team committed to each individual child’s development.  We believe that school should be a safe, challenging, supportive and fun place for children, working with parents and carers to give them the best start possible on their educational and personal journey.

I hope that our website will give you an idea of what each school is like.  If you would like to know more you are very welcome to come and see us in action - just phone or email and we will be happy to help.

Beacon Federation Governors

Vacancies for 2 New Co-opted Governors

We still have two vacancies on the Governing Board.  Anyone who shares our commitment to achieving the best for the children at Ermington and Ugborough is welcome to apply.

We need people who are strategic thinkers and effective team members.  A range of skills in areas such as Education, Finance, and Property Management are useful but there is plenty of training available in all areas of governance. 

 We meet monthly, serve for a 4-year term and are a mix of parents, members of staff and people from the wider community.  You do need to be able to visit the schools during the day from time to time. 

If you are keen to share the responsibility for the strategic direction of Ermington and Ugborough Schools and ensure the continuing development of the Federation this is your chance to do so.

To find out more about being a governor or to discuss this informally with one of us please contact the school office at Ermington (01548 830459) or Ugborough (01752 892489) or email admin@ermington.devon.sch.uk by Friday  4th November 2016.

Thank you

Sue Roberts

Chair of Governors
