Governors at Work

You may sometimes wonder what the school governors do at their meetings. They meet frequently to create and review policies, examine school finances and approve budgets. They also monitor the progress of pupils and make sure that the curriculum is both broad and balanced. At their November meeting the governors asked to see samples of children’s work so they could check presentation and standards. They are seen here scrutinising English books from every class across the school. They were able to comment on progression through the year groups, standards of handwriting and the variety of different genres children are introduced to at St Eugene’s.

They are going to conduct a similar exercise later in the year when they will scrutinise pupil’s maths books.
