‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Governor News

Our Governors work extremely hard for the school and with the children.  We would like to keep you updated with what we are doing.
19th May 2015



 In the last month a good majority of the Governors attended an in-house training session on data.  


Tracy Millar has revamped the school brochure and this is available for parents to view on the website


Tony Roberts has accompanied Robert Jenrick (Member of Parliament for Newark) to talk to the year 6 children just before the recent general election.  The Green Party and The Liberal Democrats also sent their candidates to talk to these children on separate days.  

Tony also continues to work with year 6 every Tuesday


Pam Mansfield is in school every Wednesday to work with year 3 children


Jane Brown has passed The Leadership Development Programme for chairs of governors run by the teaching college and went to The Yorkshire Wildlife Park with year 1 along with Phil Shephard who continues to help with the sport within school and transports teams to lots of venues.

This week 6 of our Governors have been on induction training.  Some because they are new Governors and some as a refresher.  We have also had 'Preparation for Ofsted' training at school where we invited Governors from other schools to attend with us.  Karl and Jane have had a data meeting with Miss Young and Jane has also had a safeguarding update with Mrs Oliver.  Pam Mansfield has been in school reading for children who needed help in a Maths exam.  She has also had a meeting with Mrs Linford about Religious Education and another with Mrs Winter about PHSE.  Councillor Stuart Wallace has organised a trip to County Hall with the pupil council which Tony Roberts will be attending.
