Welcome from the Chair Governors
Hello my name is Mark Sobczak and I am the Chair of Governors of Mere's Edge Federation
We are all very proud of Mere’s Edge Federation: our pupils, the team and both schools where we aim to provide an outstanding learning culture for all.
Mere’s Edge consists of two rural schools in north Shropshire and around 200 pupils from both Cockshutt and Criftins as well as the surrounding areas. At both schools, we are able to provide extended care and at Cockshutt able to offer a Nursey provision starting from 2 years of age. In addition, the in-house catering services at Cockshutt offer healthy, nutritious meals for both sites where each have their own dedicated lunch time facilities.
We provide a fantastic, enriched curriculum which is embedded across the team and complemented by many stakeholders from our locals communities and wider businesses. In addition, we also offer a range of additional activities including sport, music, forest schools and outdoor learning. This entire approach has been and remains a key foundation to our schools strategic planning, development and continued sustainability.
The Mere’s Edge Federation Governing Body consists of many backgrounds and professions, additionally many of the members are local and ex-pupils, therefore the commitment combined with a broad and diverse skillset ensures our Federation focuses on the continuing success of the pupils and the schools.
