Governor Information

The Academic year 2017 – 18 was one of growth and success.  The school still continues to grow in number. Although the SATs results have yet to be verified I am confident that all the hard work done by the staff and pupils will maintain the excellent record that has been set in the past.

The school was visited by Ofsted whose findings can be found on the website. Ofsted found that the Senior Leadership Team and the staff set high expectations for all pupils.  The pupils were recognised as being enthusiastic over their learning.  The report confirmed that the school was on the right track and working as a team were looking for excellence in all aspects of school life.

The Governors too had their own success - they were awarded, for the second time, the Governor Mark.  This indicates the quality of work done by the Governors in ensuring that high standards are maintained.

My thanks go to all the Governors and all the staff for making it a pleasure to be Chair of Governors at Glebe.
