Governors have a key role to play in:
- ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school,
- holding the headteacher and senior leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance of the staff,
- overseeing the financial performance of the school to ensure that money is well spent.
Governors monitoring and evaluating progress:
Governors enjoyed their visit to the Book Fair.
Governors regularly join Leaders in the school to carry out Learning Walks.
The opening event for the new school garden and the coffee morning for the parents was a great success. Pupils, parents and governors commented that they liked the improvements to the garden. They all enjoyed planting some new plants and look forward to growing some fruit and vegetables.
Governors visited our Science Fair, our final celebration for British Science Week. Representatives from each class presented an investigation that they had been focusing on during the week. Governors spoke with the children about their learning and watched as the whole school came to explore each other's investigations.
