Welcome and Introduction to our Community Council
The Trust governance model recognises that Community Councils are, whilst a full and formal part of the governance structure in line with the Trust’s Articles of Association, wholly advisory bodies who focus on;
The ethos and values of the school
The ambition, appropriateness and effectiveness of the school's curriculum for its children
The wellbeing of pupils, families and staff
Our Priorities for 2022-2023 are:
Writing - To increase the number of children achieving ARE in writing across all year groups
Maths - To increase the number of children achieving ARE by increasing their knowledge of mathematical vocabulary
Assessment - To use multiple assessment information to maintain consistently high expectations across all areas of the curriculum
Community councillors are a much valued group of volunteers that play a crucial role in our school offering challenging but positive and proactive support to the Headteacher and Senior Leadership team on behalf of the children and community that the school serves. They know and celebrate the strengths of the community that the school serves alongside holding the highest aspirations and expectations for our pupils.
Community councillors are appointed from current parents and staff alongside committed individuals from the wider community. Councillors have an interest in the education and wider opportunities offered by the school to all pupils and have some free time to give to supporting the school vision and aim for every child to develop and enjoy their time at school, learning and progressing to further education.
