Governors

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:

  • Planning ahead and monitoring the performance and progress of our children so that our school continues to improve.
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
    The Headteacher of the school is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school and for operational matters.

Update from the Governing Body

Results of the Parent Survey December 2020

Thank you to all parents who completed our annual survey online before Christmas.  In total we received 79 responses. The results are shown below.

 

This year the parent survey questions were adapted to include your views on the Vision and Values of the school. Thank you so much for all your responses and helpful comments regarding this - we will be sending out a separate update on our work with this project. If you’re interested in getting involved and sharing further insights, please do get in touch.

 

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. This has clearly been a year like no other and therefore drawing comparisons to previous data is difficult. However, we recognise the need to keep communicating through various channels to ensure you have the information you require to support your child.

 

In the meantime, for those areas where parents were unsure about certain aspects regarding their children’s learning, please do look at the School website and in particular the Class pages,

https://www.englishmartyrs.w-sussex.sch.uk/class-pages/

where for each year group they will have the end of year expectations leaflet, the topic webs detailing the current learning for the term, and updates on the specific learning taking place for each class.

 

Many thanks for your support as always.

The Governors.
