A very big 'thank you' to Mrs Diane Roberts for all her years of service on our governing body. We wish her well and will miss her excellent support, latterly as the Chair of Governors but for many years as Vice Chair too. Mr Rodmell, our current Vice Chair, will be 'Acting Chair of Governors' until our new Chair is appointed.
We are sorry that Mrs Bushell, a co-opted governor, resigned from the governing body on 12th September. Mrs Bushell has been a great support to the school and we thank her for her support for the school over many years.
Andrew Smith, Diocesan Director of Education for the Diocese of York, visited us to discuss opportunities for collaboration on 18th September, 2017. This was an informative meeting and supported us in understanding the school's position in relation to the academies agenda.
Elaine Bowers, our LA 'School Improvement Partner', also delivered training to help us in preparation for our next inspection.
