Summer Term 2018 News from the Chair

Governing Body Summer Term 2018 News


The Governing Body of Gisburn School would like to congratulate staff and pupils alike on a very successful year.  It is testament to ALL staff and children who have worked extremely hard this year, that the school has continued to run smoothly and outstanding results have yet again been achieved.  It has certainly been a busy year, as we have welcomed three new members of staff and have had our OFSTED inspection, where Gisburn achieved the highest grade possible.   Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff and pupils for their hard work, enthusiasm and dedication over the last year. 

We would like to officially welcome Mrs Lisa McCloskey as the permanent head teacher of Gisburn Primary School and look forward to continuing to work with her next year.

We would also like to thank FOGS for their continuous and highly successful fundraising which they provide for Gisburn School.  The huge amount of personal time donated by individual FOGS members is very much appreciated, and we are very grateful for the successful organisation of so many events and activities for the benefit of our school.  Their vital contribution towards the school’s finances mean that our pupils do not miss out on resources and experiences that they otherwise would.  Thank you also to all the parents who support FOGS by attending their events and donating to the school.

The governing body have met 3 times this term; the resources committee and the standards and effectiveness committee met in June and the full governing body met in July.  In addition, nominated governors have visited school and governor reports have been received on Safeguarding, Special Educational Needs (SEN), Able, Gifted and Talented (AGT), Kingfishers, Eagles, and ICT.  The Chair of Governors has been to the termly Chairs’ Forum.

Finally, we wish the year 6 pupils good luck in September when they transition to high school and all the best for their future.  We also look forward to welcoming the new reception children when we return after the Summer break.

Hope you have an enjoyable Summer holiday and we look forward to seeing you in September.

The Governing Body of Gisburn Primary School.
