The Governors at St.Matthew's are committed to rigorously analysing and challenging all aspects of school improvement. Our Chair of Governors attends the termly Raising Attainment meetings with our school Advisor and all our Senior and middle leadership team to establish clear targets for school improvement, analysing cohort data and drilling down into groups and individual pupil data where applicable. Pupil Progress meetings are discussed and interventions established.
Key Strategic Governors then accompany Senior / middle leaders and the school improvement advisor on Learning Walks to quality assure judgements made and see first hand the learning taking place, talk to pupils and scrutinise work in books.
Governors impact on a termly basis is recorded in every termly Governor's Meeting Head Teacher's Report.
The most recent impact documents can be viewed by opening the link below.
Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions governors have been unable to take part in learning walks this year , however they have met remotely to discuss a number of issues . These are documented in the termly governor paperwork (Governors role in school Improvement Annex A)
