Update for parents and students: I am sure it has been a challenging week for you all, getting used to working from home, or only leaving the house for essential work or shopping. I hope there has been plenty of school work to occupy our students, and that IT issues have been resolved. I have seen some excellent work, including a home video of a Dance project filmed in a back garden. Can I ask that you do not email teachers out of the normal school day (9am to 3.30pm), with questions around work. Teachers will continue to send work for next week (beginning 30th March), but there will be a two week break for Easter. Best wishes and keep safe, Paula Hearle

The Governing Body has a strategic role in the management of the school, and its responsibilities include:

  • To set the vision and strategic direction of the school
  • Hold the Headteacher to account for the school’s educational performance
  • To ensure financial resources are well spent
  • To ensure statutory duties are met and priorities approved

The work of the Governing Body has been validated by Ofsted (October 2015), who stated that the governance of the school:

  • is committed to the school’s vision of success for each student
  • plays an important and very effective part in helping leaders to drive the school forward
  • is forensic in its analysis of school data and rigorous in its challenge to school leaders
  • is meticulous in its monitoring of how the school uses its funding

Undoubtedly, the impact of the Governing Body was a significant factor in the school being judged to be Good, with outstanding features, as well as receiving a judgement of Good, in the SIAMS inspection of May 2017.
