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 web site via “Governors” to obtain further information about who we are and meetings held this year.

Detailed below are a range of topics covered by Governors since the last update in early July:

  • Group discussions were held with Year 6 pupils to capture their views of the school and identifying areas for improvement.  The overall feedback was very positive, especially with regards to the nurturing and supportive school environment.
  • A specific review of the Equalities and Diversity school action plan concluded that actions required had been completed and that focus this year shall be in relation to the School Curriculum and PSHCE.

For the Autumn term a key focus for Governors will be in relation to the School Improvement Priorities.  In November we shall be reviewing reading across the school by drop-in visits to guided reading sessions, observing phonics sessions in Reception/Year 1 and pupil voice interviews with KS1, lower and upper KS2 pupils.

On a personal note, the Governors would like to thank David Shaw for his support and hard work as a Governor over a number of years.  In addition, we would like to welcome Amy Henshaw-Ewart as a Parent Governor.

Please note the next update shall be in January 2019 when we shall look to provide you with details of our strategic plans for 2019/20.
