How do we Monitor the School?

Monitoring can take many different forms.  It may mean visiting the school, joining lessons, as well as meeting teachers and other staff.  It can mean reading and asking questions about school information, such as children's progress and attainment or our staff teams.

We also talk to children about what they think about school, sometimes by attending school council meetings, asking them what they think in class or by having lunch with them.  We always learn a lot from their opinions and try to include these in our decision making.

Parent and carer views are vital and we try to attend important information evenings, parent forum and PTA.  We use surveys to understand a range of different perspectives and are currently developing our use of working parties to support continuous school improvement.

We also meet regularly to discuss things happening in school.  There is more information about our meetings available here.
