Welcome to the Governors' Page.

We have a joint Governing Body for Grove Primary and Westwood Primary as both schools share the leadership of an Executive Headteacher. The Governing Body works very closely with both schools, meeting regularly each term. Our role is to support and challenge each school to secure improvements. In order to do this, we receive regular updates from school leaders then we visit the schools to find out for ourselves.

As well as regular monitoring of progress and attainment in literacy and maths, governors are looking at the wider curriculum. We meet with subject leaders and ask questions about the way the school delivers the best possible curriculum for our learners.

I am pleased to report that Grove is making very good progress in all aspects of work. We will continue to challenge and support the school and report our findings to you.

Best wishes

Jackie Cutchey
