Governors' Report - Autumn Term 2018

The Autumn Term has been a busy one - the introduction of our After School Club has been very successful indeed and so our school can acre for our children both before and after the school day. (details can be found in the Parents Section of this website)


The Governing Body has held its termly full meeting (100% attendance) and also held meetings of the two sub committees. The website has been checked to ensure compliance with government requirements. The admission policies have been updated.


Governors are in school on a regular basis working to support classes/children in different year groups and we have completed learning walks where we observe the children and staff working in their learning environments.


At the end of term visitors were impressed by the fantastic Christmas productions from the Early Years and Key Stage One children - showing off their skills during the festive season. Well over a hundred grandparents and members of the local community, including the Mayor of Bury, were entertained at the Community spirit afternoon where they enjoyed great entertainment from every child in the school, great company, a quiz and festive fare. The school choir also entertained people form the local church and community at the Christmas 'Coffee and Conservation' morning in December. We lay great store with the children being able to share with and be an integral part of the local community.


The 'icing on the cake' at the end of term was when the Key Stage 2 SATs results for Bury LA were published revealing that we were placed 5th out of 63 primary schools. An excellent result and thanks go to all the staff for their continued commitment to the children of Christ Church Ainsworth School and their work.
