Crakehall CofE Primary School

Our Governing Body

In September 2018, the governing body of Crakehall CE Primary School took the decision to federate with Brompton-on-Swale CE Primary School.  In doing so, both schools’ governing bodies were disbanded and a new federated governing body formed.

The federation is called ‘Synergy Schools’ and further information about the governance of our school can be found be clicking the link below.
