Autumn Term 2016
Two new members have recently joined the Governing body; Adam Bijster joins us as a Parent Governor and Amanda Quince joins us as the Governor nominated by Renhold Parish Council. Our thanks go to them for putting themselves forward for membership of the body - being a Governor can at times be quite onerous but is also very rewarding and worthwhile. We are now once again up to full strength.
This term we have had several meetings of both the full Governing body and also the Finance and Personnel Committee. At these meetings we have been looking at the usual items, such as reviewing policies, receiving the Headteacher’s report and analysing the school’s performance over the previous academic year, but much of our time has been spent planning for the changes necessary to become a Primary school. As you can imagine there is much to consider and very soon we will have a Year 5 class at the school for the first time! As the school grows in size it is vital that we maintain the current ethos which runs throughout the school and this is very much on our minds as we make decisions for the future.
During the term Governors have carried out school visits to look how literacy is being delivered across the whole school and also to check that the school’s safeguarding practice is sound. Governors have also attended all of the school activities including the fabulous I Sing pop concert and the various Christmas performances. Very well done to all of the children and staff who put in such a fantastic effort with these shows.
