Love to Learn, Together with the Lord
Message from Chairman of the Governing Body - March 2017
On behalf of all the Governors at All Saints’ I really must congratulate all members of the school, children, teachers, support staff, parents and fellow governors on the recent two superb inspection reports. These are the Ofsted and Siams reports. Copies of both are to be found on the school web site.
Both of the reports do emphasise and highlight many strengths of the school. The Siams inspection report gave a grade of OUTSTANDING and the Ofsted report was GOOD. Such high quality reports only come with hard work, total commitment to the school values and the support by all and for all members of our school community.
As always in a school there are areas which can be improved and you can rest assured that the school will be focusing its efforts on these over the coming months. I do visit school often and I am always impressed with the excellent behaviour of the children and the high quality of the teaching.
Best wishes to you all
Chairman of the Governing Body
Message from Chairman of the Governing Body - April 2016
As always the school has been extremely busy over the term since Christmas. As we come towards the end of the term I would like to highlight a number of successes.
The school has recently been awarded the “Church Distinctiveness” Award. This is a prestigious award to receive and Mrs Partington received the award on behalf of the school, quite recently, at Blackburn Cathedral.
Attendance for the school continues to improve and at present the average attendance is slightly over 96%. This is a real improvement over the last two years and is excellent news. We all know that good attendance at school is one of the major reasons for success ar school.
The new entrance and cloakroom at the Key Stage Two entrance has now been completed. It really has improved the entrance both in appearance as well as safety for the children.
Could I remind children and parents that we do have the facility in school for children to join the Unify Credit Union Junior Savers Scheme. A number of children are members and it is a great way for children to save money.
A huge thank you to our school joiner Mr Redman for making our "Throne of Words" chair at no cost to the school. You will hear more about the "Throne", when the children interview some important guests next term.
I often visit school and I am always impressed and encouraged by the way the children behave in their lessons and how they are also always on task. I am sure we send our best wishes to year six and Mrs Marsden during their SATs week beginning on Monday 9th May. They have worked extremely hard this year and deserve to do well.
On behalf of the Governors I would like to thank both the teachers and children for their hard work throughout the term and parents for their support.
Enjoy the two week break
