It has been an interesting last few months! I first and foremost wanted to thank you for the continued support you have given to the school and, particularly, to your children, during the lockdown period. All of the governors have been very pleased with the work that has been provided on-line by Mrs. Bratt and her team during these very difficult times. I know that it has not been easy both for parents and the school in trying to ensure that your children’s education has not suffered too much whilst they have been away from their normal lessons. It is a credit to the team work between home and school that I have been able to witness an almost seamless return to education and a programme of work that will help children to continue to make excellent progress.
It has been a challenging year. The excellent OFSTED inspection report has given the school the means to continue the drive towards being outstanding. I, together with the OFSTED inspector, know that the school would have received this label if inspected using the previous OFSTED framework. However, the quality of teaching and learning; the excellent results trend – ever improving over the past few years; the drive to provide an interesting curriculum that will provide children with the best possible transition to secondary school and a love of learning are all indicators that the school is always moving forward.
On this note, I would like to ask you to seriously consider joining the Governing Body to become part of this success story. We have a balanced membership of retired teachers, current teachers and governors with skills in financial and property management. We are now looking for three parent governors to join this very strong team. If you are interested and would like further information, before applying, please do not hesitate to contact me using the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
