ATTENDANCE RECORD OF GOVERNORS

 

All Governing Body Meetings have been ‘quorate’ (the number of governors needed to ensure that legal decisions can be made); individual governors’ attendance at formal meetings is noted below.
Governors know the school well and get very involved, attending school functions and supporting school events, making Link Governor visits, volunteering for school trips and supporting the Home School Association. Furthermore the Chair of Governors regularly meets with the Headteacher.
During the Summer Term governors were pleased to attend the schools ‘Party’ and exhibition to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday and schools 70th Anniversary with the Mayor and Mayoress of Redbridge, Wes Streeting our local MP (who tweeted some positive comments), staff and children. This was a very successful event.
Once a term governors spend a whole day in school; after our formal meeting there is an opportunity to visit classrooms and review the learning environment and talk with the children.

We also focus on key issues which this year included:

  •  Attending a presentation by the Article 12 Pupil Ambassadors on being a Unicef ‘Rights Respecting’ school; the
        Ambassadors were very impressive in their knowledge and confidence.
  •  Reviewed and extended our understanding of the School Development Priorities with presentations on ‘Talk for
       Writing’ (English writing) by the children, Maths and Vulnerable Pupils.
  •  Reviewing Assessment.
