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.

 During the Spring/Summer half-terms, as planned, we have:

  • Continued to maintain a close and continuous oversight of curriculum development, implementation, and impact, including presentations by staff on Geography and Art.
  • We have also undertaken some focused reviews in school with regards to Pupil Behaviour and Attendance Management.

For the rest of this term, our Governors shall continue to focus on the Curriculum, Early Years, Safeguarding, SEN/D, Pupil & Sports Premium. In addition, to increase Governor visibility, we shall be meeting with Year 6 pupils and attending various planned school events (including the Year 6 presentation evening, "colour runs", sports afternoons and school trips).

On a personal note, I recently supported the leadership team in interviewing prospective teaching staff and shall be undertaking exit meetings with staff leaving at the end of this term.

Please keep safe and well.

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