Governor News...

The Finance and Resources Committee met on 20th January to review and approve the figures for November and December. Once again, I am pleased to report that the school is in a healthy financial position through prudent spending and therefore has been able to increase staffing for Year 6 to provide additional intervention and booster sessions for our pupils in line with the priorities set out in the School Improvement Plan. At this meeting we were also able to approve the draft of the Schools Financial Value Standard. This document is a mandatory requirement for maintained schools and provides a set of questions where Governors can discuss with the school how our finances are managed. There have been Governor visits made to the school by Dr Matt James (Chair of LPP Committee), Keith Thompson (Buildings, Health & Safety) and Emma Broughton (e-Safety & Website). Our two new Governors Neil Gammon and Rachel Stringer are booked on Governor Induction this term. The Full Governing Body met on 26th January. At this meeting, with guidance from Mathew James, we were able to follow up on the training that the Governing Body received on Understanding School Performance Data. Mr Mallon also reported to the FGB on the progress made by the school towards the School Improvement Plan. This included a plan for improving writing and provision for the Most Able. With best wishes, Sue Gray - Chair of Governors.
