Together we nurture the genius in everyone
One nomination was received for the parent governor vacancy that went out via Parentmail earlier this month. Louise Groves was nominated and is therefore elected unopposed for a further 4 year term. We are pleased that she has agreed to continue in the role of Chair of Governors for the coming year. Polly Jones has been nominated, also unopposed, to be the new staff governor, she will be a very welcome addition to the governing body.
All governors spent the day in school this Thursday. They do this once per year in order to really get to know the school, the staff, visit lessons and determine their priorities for the year ahead. They spent time looking at progress data from the previous academic year and were impressed at the quantity and quality of data held by the school on every child. A continuous process of teacher assessment informs teaching and intervention strategies and then the success of these strategies is assessed for impact. The governors also reviewed the school approach to safeguarding, ensuring that national guidance in this very important area is being followed. Governors would like to thank staff and pupils for helping the day run smoothly.
