Our Governors

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.

​​​​​​​School Development Plan 2020-2021

For this school year the Governing Body ratified a recovery plan, to ensure that the school was back on track after lockdown, and all of the children were successful in their learning.

The priorities for this school year are:

* For the school to re-open fully and safely in September, and this safety to be maintained throughout the year.

* For a recovery curriculum to be in place, with a focus upon mathematics and English - accelerating progress for all pupils.

* For staff support and monitoring to be in place, safely and without breaching bubbles.

* Attendance to be above the national average - all pupils who are not shielding or isolating to attend school.

* For the mental health and wellbeing of pupils, staff and all of the school community to be a priority. Services to be fully in place to support this.

The Kent Governor Adviser for this area is:
