UPDATE FROM GOVERNORS
At the Governing Body meeting on Tuesday 4th December we welcomed four new parent governors recruited from our recent advert for new governors.
At the meeting we had a presentation from the Executive Head as part of his termly report to Governors and we had updates from each Head of School on the School Plans and achievements to date along with work still in progress.
A key focus for governors is on pupil absence and the role parents have in helping improve this and the role the school needs to have in engaging with parents in helping parents contribute to their children's learning plans.
