5      CHAIRS STATEMENT

 

The past year was a very proud one for me as it was the first year I have been Chair of Governors at Victoria Park Junior School.

 

It was a difficult year with the Head, Teaching Staff and Governors having to understand and implement the new system of assessment that has been introduced, as well as managing with continued tight budgets.

 

The Governors and Staff continue to work closely together through two Governors 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 had two new Governors join us this year. Sarah Gregory, Sarah Haughey and Karen Welsh are a welcome addition to the Governing body and bring with them enthusiasm, a passion for education and Victoria Park Junior School and great ties to the local community.

We are though, always looking to further strengthen the Governing body and if you are interested to find out more, then please get in touch with me.

 

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 assessment system and retaining and building upon our Outstanding status and supporting the Teachers, Parents and children of this fantastic school. It's hard to keep on improving but that is what we strive to do!
