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 November 2019

hank you to all parents who completed our annual survey during the Parent Evening consultations.  In total we received 167 responses which is fantastic – the overall results are shown below.  We are delighted with the 100% response to ‘My child is happy at this school’.

 

This year the parent survey questions were updated following the new Ofsted framework.  Topics on SEN, the range of subjects available, wider personal development were all new this year and it has been interesting to see your responses to this. 

 

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.  In response to your feedback we will be looking at some of new aspects that we asked about so that we can gain more specific feedback – watch out in the new year if you’re interested in getting involved and sharing some insight. 

 

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, 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.
