The Governing Board of the Cledford Primary and Gainsborough Primary & Nursery School Federation play an important role in school. They are a hard working group of people with a variety of skills and backgrounds. They have a clear vision and share the same values, always striving for the very best for all pupils, parents and staff.

The Full Governing Board meets once a term. There are also sub-committees called the Resources Committee and the Teaching, Learning & Achievement Committee along with the Staff Apprasial & Pay Progression Committee.

A safe and supportive environment; safe from hurt by others, in what they say or do; safe to learn within an enquiring environment; encouraging creativity, and a questioning mind.


Smart ways of thinking and learning, behaving and the way in which we present ourselves, as a member of Gainsborough School.


Treat others as you wish to be treated, help each other to be happy within school, greet others with a smile, help to create a happy and enthusiastic place to learn.
