On behalf of the Governing Body I welcome you to our school's website, which I hope you will find interesting and informative.
The Governors share the school's determination to offer its pupils an environment which is keen to promote educational excellence which is both pleasant and secure.
We like to think that the governors add strength and support to the school's Head and teaching staff, yet at the same time, through regular meetings, we are anxious to ensure that the school's high standards are maintained. In order to do this, staff and pupil performances are regularly monitored and reviewed and every effort is made to ensure that the school's policies are enforced in a sensitive and caring way.
Throughout these challenging times, we have worked closely with the school to ensure we comply with our statutory requirements to keep the school and the wider community safe.
I hope that by visiting this site you may be encouraged to make a personal visit to our school, where I know you will be made to feel most welcome. On a personal level I should be delighted to meet any visitor by prior arrangement through the school to discuss any issues you may wish to bring to my attention.
Chair of Governors
This page aims to keep you up to date with who the governors are and what we are doing. We are extremely lucky to have a full complement of governors on our Governing Body with a mix of parent, co-opted and Local Authority governors. The members have a wide range of skills and experience which is vital when undertaking the necessary strategy decisions required to run such a thriving and popular school. The full and informative newsletters that parents receive regularly also include a resume of what we have been involved with in our Standards and Resources Committees and the Full Governing Body meetings. We also undertake regular visits to the school to monitor progress against our Single Plan which sets out the priorities for the year. It is always a pleasure to see the staff and pupils at work and be able to be part of it all, even if only for a short period time. Real highlights are the music, drama and extra activities which we are privileged to attend.
With the full return to school in September with the new Covid procedures in place, Governors undertook a number of visits in the first weeks of term both covering drop-off and pick-up, and during the school day. We were really impressed with how the new procedures have been adapted to by children, families and staff, and were really excited to see our full cohort back in school. We are conscious of ensuring the school’s processes and procedures are kept updated as guidance changes, and we will continue to monitor.
