|Summer Term 2023|
Dear Parents and Carers
It’s been another busy year for staff and pupils and I think everyone is ready for a break, hopefully with some warm weather. The governors would like to say thank you to all the staff for their hard work this year. We would also like to say a big thank you to Mr Sallis and Mrs Welch for their commitment and dedication to the school this year especially as both were new to their roles last September.
We would like to wish Year 6 good luck as they move on to their new schools and best wishes to those staff moving on to other roles.
The work of the Governors
One of the core functions of the governing body is financial responsibility – governors must ensure there is financial oversight, that leaders are held to account, and that money is spent correctly and in line with the school’s priorities. During this term the Finance Committee has met to review the budget for the next year financial year. The Catholic Life and Curriculum Committee have met and received updates on the Catholic Life of the school, reviewed progress, and monitoring, and received updates on the curriculum. The Full Governing Body has met to consider the work of the committees, receive notification of actions completed and consider plans for the next year.
The Diocese of Westminster has expressed a wish for all of its schools to move toward academisation as part of one of its existing Catholic Academy Trusts. The school is continuing to work with the Diocese and ASCAT to explore the opportunities that academisation might bring for St Cuthbert Mayne along with St Rose’s and the other Catholic schools in Dacorum.
We would like to say thank you to the parents and carers for their continued support of the school. We hope you all have a lovely summer break with family and friends.
Chair of Governors – On behalf of the Governing Body
