Key strategic link governors , in particular for the core subjects, Pupil premium, EYFS and SEND regularly visit and carry out learning walks / deep dives with our school attached advisor , and attend data meetings (usually the Chair). This keeps governors fully involved and allows them to challenge practice and impact .

We have a wealth of knowledge on our governing body which leads to quality observations and judgements being made and discussed. School priorities are regularly revisited to inform school self evaluation and what direction we need to go in next.
