The Governing Body are very grateful to how everyone has risen to the challenges that have faced everybody over the last couple of weeks and Liz Maykels, the Chair of the Governors has written to all parents, carers staff and governors to thank them.

Despite the school being closed and last week’s Full Governing Body meeting being cancelled, Governors are being kept up to date with regular updates from Mrs Trickett.  In addition to these updates, Governors are looking at items that were to be included in the Agenda at home. This includes reports on Maths, MFL Pupil Leadership and a Heads Report.   Then questions and comments are being shared via email.  We are looking forward to a meeting together when the circumstances allow.
