5      CHAIRS STATEMENT

 

I have been the Chair of Governors at Victoria Park Junior School for the past two years and it is a role which fills me with immense pride.

 

The last year was an excellent year for the school as we got to grips with the new system of assessment and continued to deliver a high standard of education with very tight budgets.

 

The Governors and the Staff continue to work closely together through two Governor's afternoons a year, working closely with Teachers on their Development plans for different subjects and also enjoying and helping out at the many special events and performances put on by the school.

 

We have a very active Governing body and if you are interested to find out more, then please get in touch with myself.

 

The school is very well managed and we are very focused on providing an outstanding education for the children.  During the next year, we are focusing on embedding the new assessment system and retaining and building on our 'Outstanding' status and supporting the Teachers, Parents and children of this fantastic school. It's hard to keep improving but that is what we strive to do!
