About the Governors.

During the year the governors meet regularly to oversee the running of the school. There have been several new governors joining us recently, as the places have become available. We have interesting, well-run meetings and are continually monitoring ourselves in terms of efficiency.

Each non-teaching governor is assigned to a year group and visits the school to learn how the classes are organised and to see our wonderfully active school in operation. In addition, many of the governors come in to school to help with various activities.

The governors are split between three committees: Staffing and Finance, Curriculum and Environment & Risk Assessment. The committees discuss their areas of responsibility and report back termly to the full governing body.

An annual parents meeting gives a formal possibility for parents to ask questions of and make suggestions to the school governors. One of the many legal requirements of the governing body is to report to parents on the progress of the school each year. In recent years we have published ParentLink to give information on the SATs results, the budget, extra-curricular activities, children's work etc. The report also contains reports on awards gained by the school, articles written by teachers in response to parents questions and a round-up of future plans for school development. Highlights of the report can be found in the Office area of this web site. Copies of the report are available to prospective parents.

The Aims of the School

We aim to provide a broad and balanced education in a caring and supportive environment in order to encourage children to learn effectively and with enthusiasm, and to build a firm foundation for their future development.

We aim to

Respect each child as an individual

Create a rich, nurturing environment in which each child can thrive and reach their personal best in all areas of school life.

Build children’s confidence and self-belief by encouraging a ‘can-do’ attitude and by celebrating their successes.

Promote respect, tolerance and understanding for one another.

Acknowledge that parents are the principal educators of their child.

Seek to work in partnership with parents and the wider community.

Parents and the School

If you have any concerns or queries at any time please do come and see us. The staff are always pleased to help. Your child’s class teacher can be contacted directly (after school is preferred) or an appointment can be made through the school office. If a member of staff has a concern about your child’s academic, physical, emotional or social development you will be contacted at an early stage and invited to discuss the matter.

Our Home School Agreement explains our aims and values; your support and encouragement are very important The Agreement spells out the responsibilities of the school and parents. It also gives details of the school’s expectations for children. A copy of the Agreement is included in the Appendix.

Meetings with parents/carers are held during the Autumn and Spring Terms. A report is written on each child during the Summer Term and parents are welcome to make an appointment to discuss the content with the class teacher. Parents of children in Year 2 and Year 6 will also be invited to discuss the children’s SATS results.

Frequent newsletters inform parents about school events. Throughout the year there are various events such as concerts, sports events, and performances to which you are all warmly invited. We are always delighted when parents offer to help. Many parents help with general tasks such as making or repairing resources, joining educational visits, making costumes etc. Other parents prefer to help within the classroom, for instance with cooking, art and craft, group work or similar activities. Your help would be very welcome. We have a large number of volunteers from the local community who join us during Golden Time on Friday afternoons at 2.30p.m. We also welcome help with our Storysacks project, a small band of volunteers help to make the sacks and create items to supplement the books and tapes.
