Annual Governance Statement for the Governing Body of Dinting Church of England (VA) Church of England Primary School

September  2016

 

On behalf of the Board of Governors, I am delighted to present the Annual Report for the Academic Year 2016/17. This report will hopefully give you some insight into all that has gone on in Dinting Primary over what was a very busy, exciting and productive academic year. The school is very fortunate to have the support of so many people who give their time in different ways. I would like to take this opportunity to thank:

The staff for their continued professionalism and commitment to the pupils academically and pastorally.

 Friends of Dinting School (FoDS) for their continued enthusiasm in organising and delivering fun activities; and contributing to the funds of the school such as towards the community-accessible defibrillator.

The Governors who volunteer their considerable time, skills and dedication for the benefit of the children and their community.

And finally but not least all you the parents and carers, without who’s support for your children, our staff and our school life, wouldn’t be the happy, safe and nurturing place we know it to be.

 Best wishes,

  
Damien Greenhalgh

Chair of Governors

Attendance of governors

We value the work of all our governors. We recognise that as volunteers their attendance and participation will naturally be dictated by other aspects of their personal and professional lives. While we accept that their attendance at formal meetings is an important part of their role, we also acknowledge and greatly appreciate the considerable time and dedication given over and above these meetings towards our school’s continuing improvement.
