School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children's education. They provide leadership and accountability in school.  Governors have responsibility for the strategic direction of the school, including school finance.

At full governing meetings we set aims and objectives for the school. We view and discuss the headteachers report, updates, attendance and discuss pupil achievement. We monitor our school development plan and safe guarding. We set a focus for monitoring visits and receive feed back once they have been completed. We challenge and support the headteacher in all that she does. We set targets that enable us to achieve our aims and objectives. 

The targets for this year were approved in the School Development Plan, in the meeting of the full governing body on the 3rd October 2018. Priorities for this year have been identified as:

Priority 1: 80% of pupils in Year 1 to achieve 32+ points in the Year 1 Phonics Assessment.

Priority 2: All children in Year 2 who are required to retake the Phonics Assessment to achieve 32+ points.

Priority 3: At least 75% of pupils to achieve the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of KS1.

Priority 4: At least 30% of pupils in Year 6 to achieve the 'greater depth' or higher standard by the end of KS2.

Priority 5: Leadership capacity to be developed across the school.
