Governor Updates

Update July 2016 

A fantastic year for Danesfield school where the results of hard work, ambition and the the vocational strength of staff have seen us take significant strides to the attainment of our strategic vision. 

  • A challenging year for our staff and students with the introduction of new tests did not dampen results with excellent outcomes for children significantly in excess of national and local school averages. Full details have been shared elsewhere. 
  • The investment in technology has been followed through with a commitment to training and mentoring that governors have witnesses first hand. This has led to the school becoming a Microsoft Showcase School and to staff being invited to host schools from across the UK and Europe. 
  • Governors have continued to commit significant time to improving their skills through training, fully understanding their school and engaging with the community. The Chair of Governors has supported other vulnerable schools locally and has become a National Leader of Governance. 

We will continue to support and challenge the Headteacher and staff to ensure that Danesfield can become one of the leading centres of primary education in the country.

All of these areas will be discussed in more depth at the parents forum in the autumn term and in the meantime do please continue to review the documents on this website such as: The School Development Plan and minutes of Governing body meetings.

Update July 2015 

This school year has seen considerable progress made: 

  • The establishment of a new strategic school vision following an extensive period of consultation
  • The appointment of a substantive headteacher 
  • Governor, Headteacher and staff visits to leading schools across the country to see best practice and establish new ideas for the SLT and governors 
  • Excellent SATS results with significant improvements in attainment and progress. 
  • A significant investment in staff training to ensure that our school develops a learning culture in all areas. 

Governors have worked hard to support the school by undertaking significant training, regularly visiting the school and holding the headteacher to account for the goals established in our school development plan. All of these points will be discussed in more depth at the parents forum in the autumn term and in the meantime do please continue to review the documents on this website such as: The School Development Plan and minutes of Governing body meetings.

Thank you to all the parents who attended the Forum last night. Once again it was inspiring to see what a committed community we have as a school. As promised I am attaching the slides from the two presentations that I gave.
