Governors' Blog: 13th December 2019
A big thank you to all the parents and carers who joined Mr Wattam and me for our update meetings on the morning of Friday 6 December and evening of Monday 9 December. The slides from our presentation (along with some additional notes) are available here if you weren’t able to attend.
In the presentation I gave an overview of the feedback we received from the recent parent and carer survey. We received 127 responses and 95% of parents and carers said that they would recommend Goose Green to other families - a great endorsement of the school’s work and a 5% increase on previous years!
Your responses highlighted the great work of the school staff and we will be passing on your comments to the team so that they can see how much their commitment to Goose Green is appreciated. I was also pleased to see positive responses to the school’s work to encourage good behaviour and focused learning, and also the support the school provides to children with special educational needs and disabilities.
We received helpful feedback and suggestions for ways that we can make sure that Goose Green is continuing to improve. These included:
- Making sure that we celebrating the excellent learning that our children have in art, music and sport
- Looking at opportunities to further develop our after school club clubs and activities
- Encouraging as many parents & carers as we can to get involved in the school’s development, especially the important fundraising work of the Friends of Goose Green School (FOGGS)
- Continuing to develop the broad and exciting learning that we provide for our children
The school’s leadership team will be looking at these over the next term and we will keep you updated on progress and developments through the weekly newsletter.
As ever, please do get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the school office if there are any questions that you’d like to discuss.
Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and new year - see you in 2020!
