Meet the Governors

Governor's Welcome


I would like to welcome you and your family to our school.  White Waltham C of E Academy is a unique and special place where we nurture children from their first experience of education on their journey to become lifelong learners.


Every child is different and we work in partnership with parents to develop each individual to reach their full potential.


With our rapidly changing environment I am confident that we can play our part in preparing our children for their future to be responsible, creative, well educated adults with a strong Christian ethos.

Governor Comments


Christmas Fayre

It was lovely to see so many people supporting this event- lots of parents and children enjoying the different stalls and a number of high-quality products on sale too. Good to chat to those people I met while helping my husband on the St Mary’s stall. Anne Crittenden



My congratulations to all the children and staff involved in last night's Nativity. It was a charming performance. All the children spoke confidently and sang with great gusto! Anne Crittenden


Christmas Service

St Marys Church was packed for the school’s Christmas Service this year, our first with the Rev. Dave Atallah presiding.

Traditional services like this, far from being repetitive, are a cornerstone for our church school, giving us a chance to reflect and be glad for the many gifts that we enjoy as part of a safe, stable and inclusive community.


The children were brilliant, especially those who earnestly played their part in the nativity that is the centrepiece of this service. Most of the angels’ wings stayed in place, most of the halos stayed on heads, most of the animals went in the right direction and all of the teachers were on high alert, ensuring that everything and everyone was where they should be.


The readers, the choir, the soloists – all made a special contribution to what was a joyous occasion.


Children, parents, vicar, staff, governors and visitors all joined together to sing a mix of traditional and modern carols, those who could got up and wiggled their hips and we finished by raising our voices with Joy to the World. What better thought to take us all to Christmas? Linda Jones
