Message from the Chair of Governors.

Dear Parent

I am delighted as Chair to have the opportunity to welcome you and your children to Sproughton CofE Primary School. I feel very privileged to be working with such a successful, friendly and happy school.  

It is encouraging that there is such a strong partnership between Sproughton School, its staff and parents, and the community in which it is embedded; we are always seeking to increase and utilise those links.    

As a governing body we meet formally at least once per term. At other times there are smaller committees dealing with specific areas, drawing on the varied, professional expertise of the assigned committee members.  We are passionate in our support for the school to fulfil its values, vision and aims. We work closely with the head teacher and staff to create an environment, where the children obtain a good level of academic performance but which also nurtures their spiritual, moral and social development.  Thanks to the professional and dedicated staff we do this well.

Although a good school we are constantly looking for ways to develop further.  We have several monitoring programmes in place including a computerised Pupil Progress Tracker which ensure that every child’s progress is clearly tracked by the staff.  Any general trends in data are identified and shared with governors for evaluation and planning.  It is important to us that we gather your feedback about the school, so from time-to time the governors will ask you to respond to questionnaires about how well you think we are doing or to seek your opinion on current issues.  We are grateful to those who show their support in this way and truly value the information obtained.

We regularly update our website so that it supplies useful and interesting information about our school community.  We hope that it is an effective tool for both existing pupils' families - because of its links to newsletters, policies and general news - and those who are interested in finding out more about our school.

May I wish you and your families every success at Sproughton School. I believe in choosing this school you will be giving your children a bright start in life.

Yours sincerely,

 

Rev Annette Shannon
