Autumn 2015

It has been a very busy time for the Governing Body.  Recruiting a new Headteacher has been our priority in the last few weeks.  As you will now know we have appointed Mrs Kate Steven as our new Headteacher.  She joins us from a very successful time at Park Primary School in Aldershot, Hampshire.  We had a wonderful short list of candidates and felt very humbled by the passion all the candidates showed in their endeavour to become our new Headteacher.

Since our reconstitution in the Spring we have now been reforming our two sub-committees.  Our new committees now comprise of a Resources Committee and a Communication/Monitoring Committee.  Both committees are working hard to establish their full remit and have put together work plans to ensure that we do the most effective job that we can.  One of the agenda items that we are focusing on this year is how we communicate more with staff and parents and this blog will be a part of that plan.  We would always be interested to know what information you would like to know about the Governing Body and the work that we do.

Due to Governor terms expiring and the retirement of a Governor we have the following vacancies at the present time:-

  • Parent Governor
  • Staff Governor
  • Local Authority Governor
  • Co-opted Governor

If you have an interest in any of these positions please contact Clare Datta, Chair of Governors via School Reception.

Spring 2015

The Governing Body is presently under taking its reconstitution as per Government guidelines for all schools.

Once this has happened a list of the newly appointed and co-opted governors will be published.

We are working hard as a Governing Body to recruit a new Headteacher for our school.  Once this has happened we want to focus on our communication with parents and the community which will mean more blog updates and readily available information.

If you have any queries or questions in the meantime then do not hesitate to contact the Chair of Governors – Clare Datta – via School Reception.
