Governor news...

Our Finance and Resources Committee met on 9th November to review and approve the month end figures for Sept/Oct, to approve the funding provided by the Sports Premium, for Children Most Able and for the delivery of the School’s Writing Plan. I am pleased to report that the School’s finances are in good shape, that the money we receive is well spent and that resources are well managed. The school’s budget is clearly linked to the School Improvement Plan (SIP) with both Pupil Premium monies and Sports Premium impacting on the targeted pupils and the wider school respectively. These are detailed on the School’s website. The Appraisal Policy was approved and the Draft Admissions Policy (2017-18) was submitted to County for approval. 

The Full Governing Body met on November 18th where the Committee chairs reported on the work undertaken this term so far and Mr Mallon reported on progress towards the 5 school priority targets. There have been several Governor Visits to school this month.  Each visit is designed to have a focus linked to the SIP. This month there have been visits observing Most Able Provision, e-safety, safeguarding and SEND. Following each visit Governors submit a report to their sub-committee for discussion.  As a result of the safeguarding visit the Annual Report and Audit were submitted to County.

You will have seen that there are two vacancies for Parent Governors.  I would encourage any parent/carer who can offer their skills and expertise to come and join our Governing Body. We aim to be an integral part of the School joining with Senior Leaders, parents and pupils in helping to raise standards for all. A very worthy cause designed to make a direct impact on pupil progress!

Finally, the Governors welcomed the opportunity to meet many parents at the two Parent Consultation Evenings. Thank you to all who spoke to us on either of these evenings.  Your feedback helps both the Governors and the school to continue to develop.

With good wishes, Sue Gray; Chair of Governors.
