Statement from Governors
The governors at Wickford Primary School are committed to helping the education and welfare needs of all the children in our school, working with all staff to help each child develop and enjoy their experiences during their school life. We currently have a Strategic Intervention Board in place to enable the governing body to support the leadership team by being a critical friend and asking challenging questions.
We continue to support teaching staff, enabling our children to make good progress both in their academic attainment and social and emotional development. We will also continue to help set challenging targets for all pupils as well as focussing on children in receipt of pupil premium and SEN support.
We regularly meet to discuss curriculum, financial and personnel matters with the senior leadership team and other outside bodies. We work within the guidelines of the government and help to enforce the aims of the school: for all children to become independent, motivated learners and responsible citizens. Through achievable and challenging experiences we aim for children to acquire the skills, knowledge, attitudes and values that will enable them to understand the world and contribute positively to the wider community.
