Here's where you can find out a bit about our governing body.
Governors have a key role to play in ensuring that our school is successful in our community.
Their aims include:
Some examples of the areas they help the school in are:
The governors attend a minimum of one meeting per term and one training / development session per school year. They also attend a school’s committee.
I have been working at the Orion Primary School as a class teacher for 11 years.
Having started as a newly qualified teacher, my role has developed and grown. As well as being a class teacher I have also had a leadership role in Art and Design, Design and Technology, Modern Foreign Languages and our Academy programme. My current role began when the school first expanded from two form entry and I am now the Head of World Learning and Key Stage One Leader, which involves leading all foundation subjects and overseeing the Year 2 SATs assessments.
I became a Governor in 2011 because I was looking for ways I could be further involved and support the school. I am very proud to be part of the Governing Body and the Orion Primary School.

I became a governor because I was inspored by the positive learning attitude at the school and the encouraging effects it had on my children. When I'm not working at the school as a Teaching Assistant, I enjoy spending time with my family and I'm also fascinated by astronomy.
Being part of a wonderful multi-cultural federation makes me proud... the schools are positive, vibrant and outstanding!

Hi, I am Annii and was elected as a Parent Governor in December 2015. I am an Artist and graduated with an Applied and Media Arts BA (Hons) Degree in 2002. I have many years of experience working in the educational system from Early Years to Secondary School, I also used to support children with special educational needs and teach vulnerable and disaffected students aged 13-19 that were not in the educational system.
I have an interest in our children’s futures and as a Governor it is important for me to provide the communities views and give a fair input from a parental perspective. I wish to make a positive contribution to our children’s education and help keep the Federation to be known as outstanding.
On my visits to the Schools I have been very impressed with the Federation’s level of high standards and the quest to empower our children. I am very gratified with the staff's way of teaching education in addition to the enthusiasm and encouragement of promoting healthy eating and providing fresh food and free activities for our children. I really like and am proud of the schools ethos of encouraging good eating habits whilst educating and involving parents.
I believe the Gold Star Federation is very exciting and unique establishment and is helping create and empower an incredible future for our children!
