Our Governing Board meeting on 12 October was a hybrid meeting with some governors attending in person and others via Zoom. We discussed the school’s approach to online safety and building children’s knowledge, skills and confidence in online safety. We also received and discussed reports on the impact of Pupil Premium and Sports Premium funding and the effectiveness of the school’s SEND provision.

We planned surveys which we intend to use to seek views from parents and staff and, as usual, we also had a number of policies to discuss and ratify

If you would like to speak to a Governor at any time, our names are listed on the Governors’ page on the school website and we would be happy to speak to you – many of us are also parents, so you can often catch us before or after school. Alternatively, our Clerk, Heather Large, can be contacted at hlarge@stfrancis.swindon.sch.uk  and can arrange for one of us to contact you.
