PQA Committee – 5th July 2017

The Pupil Quality Assurance Committee of Governors met on Wednesday, 5th July. The excellent recent Ofsted report made us think that perhaps this would be a simple and quick meeting, but, in fact, we spent quite a bit of time discussing outcomes and achievements for this year, with a view to identifying key school improvement issues for next year. The Committee also discussed a playground accident in the Infant School and how the school responded and lessons learnt.
