Welcome to our Governors’ section.
The aim of the Governors at our school is to work with the staff in helping the children achieve their full potential in a happy, caring environment.
We do this in four main ways:
Results of the Parent Survey November 2021
It was lovely to see so many parents in person at the parents evening. Thank you so much to everyone who completed a survey. In total we received 111 responses this year. The results are shown below.
We are delighted that so many parents feel their children feel happy and safe at the school.
If you couldn’t attend the parents evening and would like to complete the survey you can still pick one up from the school office. We welcome any feedback or comment at anytime of the year so please do get in touch if you would like to email@example.com
As a Governing Body we discuss the views of parents with the Head and her staff so that we can work together to address any areas of concern.
Many thanks for your support as always. The Governors

Governors also asked,
How did your child/children cope with lockdown and their gap in schooling?
How did the school deal/cope with the journey from 'lockdown' to full return to school in September 2021?
The comments received from parents/carers were very positive and a reflection of the hard work demonstrated by Dr Townsley and all her staff to maintain good contact with all pupils and parents/carers either by telephone, email, text or in some instances a personal visit to the home. Google Classroom was introduced which was a good development for our pupils to remain focussed on the curriculum whilst learning at home.
There were, of course, a lot of challenges for us all to face during the time of the pandemic. Governors have not lost sight of what an amazing contribution parents/carers made to support the school during this very difficult time. With the full return to school in September, it was uplifting for Governors to learn that pupils were very happy to return to their school environment, their friends and their teachers'.
