Governor Attendance 2018-19

Governing Body Meeting Dates

Governor Communications

Governors report regularly to parents either by way of newsletters or presentations at parent consultations.  Please see below for recent examples.

Annual Parent Questionnaire

Annually the parents are asked to complete a questionnaire that reflects the Ofsted standards.  The responses are then analysed and presented to the parents by the Governors.  Please see below for the most recent questionnaire results.

Annual Governors' Afternoon

This year, Governors Afternoon was held on 10 February 2020. Our Learning and Pupil Progress governors each undertook a subject focused visit in the following subjects: Music, RE, French, Science and Geography. They visited classrooms, looked in books and spoke with pupils from all year groups. After the end of the school day governors were able to chat with the subject lead over tea and cake. Our Finance and Resources Governors focused on our School Values and My Personal Best. They were very impressed with the children's ability to articulate My Personal Best  - what it is all about and the particular focus for this term - given that this is new to our PSHE curriculum this year. A Full Governing Body meeting then took place at 4.15pm. Thank you to Mrs Martin and all staff for welcoming us so warmly  - it was a pleasure to chat with the children and see how proud they are of their work!
