The Downs View Governing Board meets regularly at the school and our last meeting was on 14 March 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.
We discussed the Headteacher’s report which included progress towards the targets in the School Plan and ongoing building maintenance. We also discussed ways of saving money, including collaborative staff training with other schools and how the Friends are raising funds for more books across the school.
We agreed a Governor Three Year Vision to replace the Annual Statement on the website to give interested parties more information on what we do and what we have achieved. DfE Governor Space recognised that we had successful completed the leadership programme.
School policies: We reviewed the Governor induction, Pupil Assessment, Religious Education which we approved and we deferred staff wellbeing and PSHE to our next meeting. At our next meeting we will be discussing the 3 Year budget plan and reviewing business continuity plans.
