There is currently a Parent Governor Vacancy on the Governing Body. Being a governor allows you to take an active role in the strategic planning of the school, whilst supporting Mrs Allen and all the staff in their continuous drive to deliver an outstanding education to the children.
When you become a governor, you are introduced to the other governors at the Full Governing Body meeting. At this meeting you are assigned to a committee. We have three main Committees which cover Curriculum, Finance/Personnel and Health & Safety. Each committee meets at least once a term sometimes once every half term. The Full Governing Body meets five times a year. All the meetings are held in the evening generally from 7-9pm. There is a certain amount of reading policies and reports involved. These are sent to you via e-mail prior to the meetings. We encourage Governors to join in the life of the school and link with a class throughout the year.
There will be an information evening at 6-6.30pm on 24th November 2014. This is an informal drop in session where myself and Mrs Allen will be able to answer any questions you have relating to the role of Governor.
If you wish to nominate yourself as a parent governor then please complete the attached form and return it to the school no later than 9.00am Friday 28th November 2014 at the Oaks Office. If more than one nomination is received there will be an election.

Today we were lucky enough to have a Mad Science assembly! Chain Reaction Ches showed us some amazing experiments including creating a fire cloud with icing sugar and she also used a scientific theory (Bernoulli's) to cover us with toilet paper!
There will be a Mad Science club for year three and four children starting after Christmas on Thursdays for six weeks. A letter will be going out to year three and four children tonight about this.
