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.

In our Summer update, it was 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.  For the Autumn term, this priority remains the same.  In addition, at our Full Governors meeting on 7th October 2020, it was agreed that we would focus on the following areas:

  • Remote learning for pupils and the contingency arrangements in the event of school closure/pupil self-isolating.
  • Pupil assessment and the use of "catch up funding".
  • Pupil and staff well being.
  • Pupil behavior and attendance.
  • 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 due to 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 plans going forward by the school shall ensure that this environment shall continue to flourish.

On a final note, the Governors would like to welcome Sarah Rose as our new parent governor.

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