How are we doing?

As Governors, we are passionate about what we do and welcome feedback and suggestions from parents, pupils and the community to guide us. We shall maintain close links with the school to help the school continue to be successful.

Parents are invited to access the school website via “Governors” to obtain further information about who we are and the meetings held this year.


As you all know on the 4th January, the Government announced a National Lockdown in England.  As before, in view of this, our number one priority is to support the school during these uncertain times, to ensure that staff and pupils remain safe and that appropriate procedures and actions are in operation, in accordance with Government guidelines.

For the Spring Term, in addition to our ongoing focus on the quality of education provided, we agreed that we would focus on the following key areas:

  • Remote learning for pupils and recovery planning.
  • Pupil behaviour and well being.
  • Staff well being.
  • Safeguarding and SEN/D.

To achieve this, regular discussions with the leadership team and key staff shall continue as well as "virtual" governor committee meetings.

Throughout this difficult period, it has been clearly evident that with strong leadership and supportive staff, the school has been able to continue to provide a positive and nurturing environment for all pupils, as well as providing incredible support to parents.  The Governors believe that the school plans going forward shall ensure that this environment will continue to flourish.

In addition, the Governors would like to thank the pupils and parents at this time.  Despite the uncertainty and challenges being faced, we are proud with the way this community has "pulled together" and the positive attitude being taken.

On a personal note, the Governors would like to thank Amy Henshaw for her time and support as a Parent Governor.

Please keep safe and well.

Please note the next update will be in the Spring term.
