The Governing Body held its annual Strategy Day at school on Friday 6 June. In small groups, the Governors observed various lessons and were really impressed with the learning, the engagement, the behaviour and the environment. The children and staff were very welcoming, and the children’s politeness and positive enthusiasm was really noticed.
We were invited to attend assembly where Joe Tidman, the Chair of Governors, talked to the children about what Governors did and who they were. He answered a few questions including confirming that Governors do not get paid!
The Governors then had lunch in the school canteen sitting with the children and answering more of their enquiring questions. In the afternoon we contributed to the School Development Plan for 2014/15 setting targets for ourselves including developing our relationship with staff and parents at the school, and ensuring we are fully trained in assessing the school’s Pupil Premium spending. We will find opportunities to keep you updated on our progress against these targets, but if you have any questions please do get in touch via the school office (we are also hoping to set up an email address to make it easier to contact us). Governors will also be present at the school open afternoon on 17 July where we hope to meet you and talk about any points you wish to discuss.
