Governor Blog Autumn 2017
Hello and Welcome!
The Governing Body would like to welcome everyone back following the summer break. We particularly welcome those that are new to the school, both parents and children.
It is not just the children who are successful life-long learners here at Wormley Primary School. The staff are pretty great at it too! We are very proud of Mr Emmett and Mrs Harris who recently completed a masters degree in Leading Teaching and Learning with HertsCam, an educational charity, in partnership with The University of Hertfordshire. They both attained outstanding distinctions, of publishable quality.
There is an exciting academic year ahead. The autumn calendar is jam-packed with events for the school. Living History Day is sure to be spectacular again! Please see the recent News on 19th, website or school app for the key dates for these events. The Wormley school app con be downloaded through Google Play or iTunes.
We would like to urge parents, grandparents and carers to volunteer at the school in any way you can. Whatever time you can offer there is something you can do to help the school. Please speak to the school office for more information.
“A huge congratulations to all year 2 and year 6 children on their recent KS1 and KS2 national assessments and tests. All the hard work has paid off. Every single one of you should be immensely proud of what you have achieved. We are certainly very proud of you all.
The school as a whole performed really well in comparison to national averages. Collectively these results are significant and show the continuous improvement of this school. More importantly, individual results reflect the successful learning journey that each child has embarked on at Wormley Primary School.
Enjoy the summer. For those that are making the leap to Secondary School we hope that you continue to have faith, take responsibility, show respect and………….achieve.”
Governor view of the year
“The school Governors met last night for the final full Governing Body meeting of the school year. We reviewed what has been a good year for the school. A “good” Ofsted rating and recognition that this is an “outstanding” church school are particular highlights. Governors have also conducted recent key stage visits and have been impressed by the teaching techniques and performance. The children are fantastic. Their work (individual and collaborative) is always outstanding. The consensus of the children is that they enjoy this school and feel that they are inspired to achieve.
Looking ahead, there is already a lot of planning taking place for the next school year. Everyone is committed to nuturing and building on the attainment of the children and the development of the school overall. The teaching of Mastery in History next year is certainly something to look out for.
The Governors are truly grateful to Mrs Gaiteri and all the staff at Wormley Primary School for all their hard work this year”
