Home School Link Worker (HSLW)

We have two HSLW, Mrs Jo Nisbet and Mrs Karin Masters.  Their aim is to work in partnership with parents/carers, staff and other agencies to support families to ensure that all children enjoy school and feel happy and secure.  We know children thrive and reach their full potential when home and school are working in partnership to support their development.  Our HSLW can help parents/carers and children who may need support on a range of issues, for example, anxiety about coming into school, medical problems, parental separation, bereavement, attendance and punctuality.  The HSLW are available on the school gate each morning from 8.45 – 9am, and offer drop-in sessions and set appointments.  Leaflets are available in the foyer.

Supply Teachers and Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs)

Teachers have to be released from the classroom for training, meetings, monitoring, preparation, planning, assessment etc.   We have a team of supply teachers who regularly work in the school and get to know our children very well.  We also have a number of qualified HLTAs working under the direction of class teachers who can take the class for some lessons.

Students

The school welcomes many students from local secondary schools, colleges and universities.  They make a valuable contribution to children’s learning as well as gaining work experience or professional qualifications.  All students undergo checks and an induction process.

Peripatetic Music Teachers

We currently have music teachers for violin, guitar, drums, piano, woodwind, vocals and harmonica.

Our Governors 

The school has a Governing Body which takes an overview of the school’s direction and performance. The main roles of the governing body are to:

  • Provide a strategic view.
  • Be a supportive but critical friend.
  • Monitor performance.

Governors are unpaid volunteers and, with the exception of Staff Governors, do not have to be education professionals. Each Governor serves for up to a four year term. A Chair and Vice-Chair are elected by the Governors once a year. The Governing Body is supported by a Clerk, not a Governor but someone who helps to organise its business. There are different types of Governors including Foundation Governors (appointed by the churches of St Nicolas and St Mary as the school's founding body), Parent Governors (elected by parents of children at the school), Local Authority Governor (appointed by the Local Authority), Staff Governors (nominated by staff) and Co-opted Governors (appointed by governing body). 

The full Governing Body meets every half term and makes strategic decisions, and the minutes of each meeting are publicly available.  Governors consider many aspects of the school including Finance & Personnel, Premises Health & Safety, Pay & Performance, Curriculum & Standards, Worship & Ethos and Admissions, for which there are separate committees.  These committees usually meet termly and report  back to the Governing Body.  In addition there are the Pupil Discipline and Staff Discipline Committees which meet as and when necessary.  The Governing Body is directly responsible for Little Fishes Nursery.

Governors are requested to sign a Register of business and financial interests at the beginning of each academic year.  They must declare any relevant business interests and details of any other educational establishments.  The current governing body members have declared no relevant business or financial interests.  Please click on this link to see meeting attendance and appointment details.

If you are interested in becoming a Governor we would be delighted to hear from you.  Please do ask a Governor or the school office if you would like further information.

As a Church Aided school, Governors are required to raise 10% of the funds the school receives for its buildings.
