I have recently been into the school to the Reading Cafe, and also to meet the school at the War memorial in Stibbard for our annual act of remembrance. I was looking at both events for governor monitoring purposes, and reported to the governing body on my observations. I was particularly looking at how these events help with parent/community engagement, what behaviour was demonstrated and whether our aims and ethos were reflected.
They were two such different occasions. The Reading Cafe was so full of noise, activity and fun, a great way to promote reading among our children and their families. If you haven’t already, please look at the photos on the website of the tower we all built to the sun. The act of remembrance was a quiet and contemplative affair, and I was impressed how all members of the school community came together in a peaceful and respectful manner.
