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 recently.

 In our Spring update, we stated that our number one priority was 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.  Throughout this difficult period, and with school opening to all pupils in March, 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 develop and flourish.

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

  • Pupil progress and attainment.
  • Continued effective delivery of the school recovery plan (see school website for details) and catch-up funding.
  • Pupil behaviour and well being.
  • Pupil premium delivery and impact.
  • 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.

Please keep safe and well.

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