At our Governing Board meeting on 11 May, held via Zoom, we discussed the School Development Plan, which sets out areas in which the school plans to focus over the coming year, and the changes which are being made to the EYFS curriculum from September. We also talked about pupil and staff wellbeing and the school’s catering provision. We approved a proposal for a change to the PE kit within the uniform policy and also the revised term dates recently communicated by the LA.

We approved the school’s budget for the next three academic years and discussed how we can be confident that the school is getting good value for money in its spending. Staff who had recently attended training on the new church inspection framework for Voluntary Aided schools (SIAMS) provided an overview of this training. 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.
