We are involved in visiting the school to observe the curriculum, choosing the teachers, monitoring the finances, ensuring that children with special needs and disabilities are treated equally, and making sure the school environment is safe and stimulating.
We are always looking for ways in which the quality of learning can be improved and the school can be developed.
We meet on average twice a term as a whole Governing Body, but also meet in smaller groups as committees to discuss topics in greater depth: Resources deals with finance, equipment and personnel issues; Curriculum has responsibility for monitoring and supporting the delivery of the National Curriculum across the school; Environment helps provide a safe and healthy environment for the children, staff and helpers to work, learn and play in.
As part of its duties, members of the Curriculum Committee, carry out a number of formal visits during the year to see the ‘curriculum in action’.
As well as the formal visits, governors were heavily involved in the life of the school. As well as carrying out our statutory duties, we attended school productions, the Carol Concert at Christ the Cornerstone, Assemblies, Musical Performances, FS Café Day, Sports Day, Men Behaving Dadly and the May Fayre organised by the Friends Association.
I would like to thank all the staff, on behalf of the governing body, for meeting every challenge that has come their way, whilst continuing to delivery an exciting and stimulating curriculum in a safe and caring environment.
