FGB: 9th July 2018

Prior to FGB, our governors were treated to a ‘Festival of Learning’ where numerous staff and children shared their learning projects (separate post to follow). It was fantastic to see our learning community sharing their thoughts.

After that, despite the heat, our governors kept cool heads, didn’t get hot under the collar and got down to business. Topics covered:

  • We congratulated Ms Trickett on her appointment as Head Teacher.
  • We welcomed Ms Scourfield to the FGB in the role of Staff Governor.
  • The staffing & structure for next academic year was clarified.
  • We received Mr Roberts’ final Heads Report.
  • An update on a variety of projects across the school (tbc) was heard.
  • We thanked John Reynolds for his unyielding support as a Governor over the last 12 years. He has made a fantastic contribution to our school community

Finally, we thanked Mr Roberts for his passion, endeavour and good humour and wished him all the very best for the future.

They drew pictures, made books, researched on the Ipad and during their library visit with Mrs Stroms used the non-fiction books to find out more.

They started to make models and paintings too.
