Governor Monitoring


Welcome to our governor monitoring page. Governors provide a crucial role supporting the school to achieve the very best outcomes for all your children. We undertake strategic monitoring to ensure the school’s vision is being turned into reality, ethos is being embedded and progress is being made against the strategic plan.

Once a term we are invited into school for a ‘monitoring visit’ to help inform this process. We talk to staff and pupils and observe school life. We write reports of our visits to share with other governors, and Mrs Cole discusses them with her team. There is always plenty to celebrate, and on this page, we would like to share some of our observations with you, our wider community.

Governor monitoring roles are reviewed annually and updated after the first meeting of the academic year.

Here we share some of the governors’ observations during their monitoring visits

“The pupils demonstrated a good level of respect towards each other. They listened to both the teachers as well as other pupils. I was able to see pupils helping others.” LW

 “Pupil perceptions of Collective Worship show a high percentage of pupils enjoy worshipping in school, can pray and reflect in school and feel the Church and school work together.” HW

 “The atmosphere in all the classes was lovely; some were buzzy and interactive, in others children were listening to teaching, some were working in small groups.” GR-C

 “There was evidence of a strong relationship with the local pre-schools and already planning for the 2018 intake for reception and those that might need additional services.” AKB & AB

 “Children all seemed happy and productive – and despite the obvious distraction of ‘mad hair non-uniform’ day, were working calmly and productively!” GR-C

 “We saw lovely displays in class of the ‘times tables planets’. Children we spoke to talked positively about this visual way of showing progress through their learning” GR-C

 There was evidence of “a very clear vision for improvement, with a strong focus on consistency throughout the whole school, and I was able to see evidence of this in practice on working walls, in displays, in books, and through discussion with pupils and teachers.” HM

“School Council said ‘I think Arts week was fun and everybody’s art is awesome.’” JS
