At our Governing Board meeting on 1 December, held via Zoom, we discussed how the school is supporting pupils in catching up on any learning they may have missed whilst not in school during the first lockdown. The school has specific plans for spending the additional funding allocated by the Government for this purpose. Governors have supported the school in developing these plans and will continue to monitor spend and progress of pupils.
We also received a positive report on the return to school from the School Improvement Partner, who provides professional challenge and support to Mrs Farrell and the staff. We discussed the school’s safeguarding provisions and also reviewed the impact of Pupil Premium funding. We received updates from the three sub-committees, which have recently met to discuss, respectively, Finance, Staffing & Premises matters, Curriculum, Achievement & Safeguarding matters and Foundation & Admissions matters.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and can arrange for one of us to contact you.
