For a list of our Governors, please go to "Community" and "Meet the Governors".
We always strive to ensure that we provide a high ratio of staff to children right across the school. This is because we firmly believe that many children learn best when working in small groups and this also enables us to ensure that children receive verbal feedback about their learning whenever possible. Each class has a fully qualified teacher who is ably supported by our well-qualified and experienced teaching assistants.
All staff who are employed by the school including our office staff, caretaker and lunchtime staff are prepared to ‘go the extra mile’ to secure the best outcomes for our children.
Arrangements for seeing Teachers
Wherever possible, concerns expressed by parents and others about the school curriculum or related matters will be dealt with, in the first instance, by an informal discussion with their child’s class teacher or the Headteacher.
The Headteacher and class teachers are happy to see parents; however, if an individual child is to be discussed, it may be preferable to arrange an appointment at the end of the day.
Reporting to Parents
All children will receive a report of their progress towards the end of the summer term. Parent/Teacher consultations are held twice each year to discuss individual children’s progress.
All Year 2 children will receive a report recording their achievements in the Key Stage One tests. All Year 1 children will receive a report detailing their result in the Phonics Screen.
We also hold curriculum and e-safety workshops during the year, which parents are invited to attend.
Most difficulties and misunderstandings can be resolved through informal discussions with the class teacher or Headteacher. However, if you are not satisfied with the schools response, details of the complaints procedure is available on our website or from the school office.
Our Governors, alongside the Headteacher, are responsible for the strategic direction of the school; this includes making decisions about finance and setting the school’s policies. Governor meetings are held regularly across the school year and governors visit the school whenever they can. Governors can be contacted via the school.
Our Chair of Governors is Mr Andy Spring and our Vice Chair of Governors is Cllr N Jackson.
