Local Governing Academy Committee

Hi all, your Gorsey Local Governing Academy Committee here, providing you a latest update from our last meeting.

Alongside our usual updates on Finance, The Trust & reviews of Health & Safety the main focus of this meeting was around our children’s outcomes and around risk mitigation & protection.

The school provided a detailed overview of progress towards our KPIs on Expected & Greater Depth for both Key Stage 1 & 2 as well as our forecast progress scores.  We were happy to see that based on the latest forecast, we are on track to meet or exceed the ambitious KPIs we set at the beginning of the year.  As the school continues to set high standards, it’s obviously important that we also ensure a fair balance between outcomes and welfare of the children and it was re-assuring to hear that this balance remains.

We also spent a while talking about risk and how we as an LGB ensure we have suitable management and processes in place.  With an ever growing volatile world, ensuring our children’s safety is a primary focus and how we react to events is as important, which is why we have to have both a good understanding of the key risks as well as active mitigation plans in place to manage these risks.  Our connection into the local community helps with this and it was great to hear that the local PCSO is coming into school again to talk with the children.

Finally, it’s also great to see all the extra-curricular offering the school continues to offer.  Do keep up to speed with the Twitter handles and ‘hastags’ – #gorseype is a great one to keep an eye on.

Overall, another great meeting with lots of active discussion, please do feel free to reach out to any of the LGB if you have any questions.

Full minutes from the meeting will appear on this page after they have been officially approved at our Summer meeting.
