This term has been busy for everyone, SATs, the Isle of Wight Trip, Sports Day, the school Fete and finishing with a fabulous performance of Mary Pops In. Along with all the sporting competitions and afterschool activities hopefully there has been something of interest for everyone.
Work of the Governors
The Governors have attended regular termly committee meetings this term and spent an afternoon in school which provided an opportunity to find out more about the school and talk to pupils and staff. Other meetings this term have included a review of the school’s vision and strategy, the consideration and approval of the school budget for 2019-20 and discussion surrounding the development of the school’s new website which we hope will go live in September 2019.
At the final Full Governing Body meeting of the year we said goodbye to three of our Governors; Julia Roche (23 years’ service), Doug Munro (13 years’ service) and Fr Paul (who is moving to a new parish). We thanked them for their years of commitment to the school and wished them well for the future.
The Parents Association
The Governing Body would like to say thank you to the Parents Association for all their hard work over the past year. The fundraising they do provides opportunities and resources for all of your children whether it is the Numicon Maths online resource, the Basketball Wow Day, M&M Railway Children Production to name a few and funding enough laptops so that a whole class can have access to a computer each during lessons.
The PA Committee would love to have more volunteers to attend meetings and to share the work involved in organising fund raising events. If you feel that this is something you would like to be part of or would like more information, please contact Sandra McDonnell email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The more people that are involved the easier it is to run the events that benefit the pupils and the school.
As we break for summer the Governing Body would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Smith, her staff, and all the pupils, for their hard work this term. We would like to send our best wishes to those members of staff that are leaving at the end of term and wish them good luck for the future. We would also like to thank parents and carers for their continued support and hope that the summer break provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy family time.
