Governor of the Month March 2022 - Susan Shelley  


It has been brilliant this month to finally come back into our wonderful school and meet ‘in person’ with the children and staff team; and for the governors to be able to have our first face-to-face meeting for a long time! 

Being back in school made me look again at our wonderful school environment. Isn’t the new play equipment, paid for with funds raised by our fabulous PTA, amazing? Thank you to all of you parents and carers who helped with this. 

Driving by school the other morning, I noticed one of our wonderful parent volunteers hard at work in the school vegetable garden; Kate mentioned to me that some of you were even working in the garden during those heavy storms! That is dedication indeed. Thank you so much, all of you.  

Our children benefit so much from having such a stimulating learning environment. 

With the building work almost complete, and the new fencing and entrance way ensuring the children’s safety and wellbeing are maintained, Kate and the team have been working hard to get the school inside spaces back to normal after all the disruption. Some of the governors are joining in with the sorting too! 

The governor team are looking forward to our next walkaround, being able to talk with the children and teachers about how the classrooms help with learning. It is great to be back in school – hopefully I will be able to say hello to some of you again too! 


I hope you all have a lovely Easter break.
