Safer Relationships, safer internet
This week saw the final Governor meeting of the term. They meet five times a term in different guises, from full board, through curriculum, site and buildings and finance and personnel. This week, it was the turn of the Strategy Committee, who spent time reviewing the work that they and the other committees do and have done over the year.
From robust discussions about the school’s performance data, feedback from children, staff and parents and visits to the school, they have been able to shape the school’s vision and develop improvement plans that have meant that the school has made continual progress over the last five years and is in a good place to make continuing improvements over the coming years.
The work done by governance has also ensured that the school’s financial systems are sound and that we regularly get best value for the money that we spend to make the improvements and support the school on its continuing journey upwards and onwards.
The work undertaken by the site committee has meant that the environment is safe and fit for purpose. Indeed, they were instrumental in developing and producing the plans for the new main entrance.
We are extremely fortunate to have such an active and robust governing body, who are supporting the school’s strategic direction.
In keeping with the theme of people who help us, I would like to remind everyone that next week is the Christmas Fair. The PTA are hard at work organising stalls, refreshments and entertainment to help us begin the festive season with a bang. I know that they would happily accept any offers of help as we move towards the event and on the evening as well.
Just like the governors, the PTA play a critical role in the school and help us to provide the children with exciting and varied learning experiences!
Have a great weekend!
LET KIDS BE KIDS!!!
