The Downs View Governing Board meets regularly at the school and our last meeting was on 10 October 2019. At each meeting we discuss how the Headteacher and staff are working to deliver the key priorities in the school plan. If you would like more information about Downs View Governors, please visit our page on the website or ask to observe one of our meetings.
We welcomed two new Governors, Alex Lotinga and Peter Standen and each have a child in Reception. We approved the Downs View School Plan for 2019/20 which all staff and governors had contributed to. We discussed the Headteacher’s report and what measures were already in place to deliver the plan.
We received a financial report from the Business Manager which included progress with refurbishments and budget data. We also discussed staff well-being and feedback from the School Improvement Adviser visit.
School policies: Governors are continuing to work with others to improve parking outside the school and are exploring promoting this issue in the wider community. We ratified the Child Protection, Safeguarding , History, Behaviour, EYFS, Pupil Premium Strategy, Home School Agreement and Complaints policies.
The next meeting is on Thursday, 5 December 2019. If you are interested in attending a meeting as an Observer, please ask at the office.
