We have been back to the usual business of Local Governing Body (LGB) work since the start of the new academic year. This will be the first full year of the academy and we are working closely with the trust to continue to align the committee structures, LGB processes and policies so we can best work together as a trust academy. A tremendous amount of work has gone into this years budget and, despite the challenges it has presented, the significant efforts of the leadership team and all the teaching and support staff have reaped benefits for the school and ultimately its pupils. We will of course continue to monitor the national funding formula and its development and keep you posted. The committees have met in line with requirements with two meetings each of curriculum, Policy & Resources and Full Governing Body having taken place.
It is with sadness, but much appreciation that we are saying goodbye to Rev Mills after 17 years service as a Governor at Kingston Park, much of it as Vice Chair as he retires both from St John’s and the Governing body. As a Governing body we would like to thank Rev Mills for his commitment, devotion, service and significant contribution to the continuing development of Kingston Park Primary School since the year 2000. His presence and guidance will be missed by all and we pray for a long and happy retirement for Rev Mills.
