The Full Governing Body meets at least once each term, we also have 2 committees to consider different aspects of the school in detail. These committees are:

· Curriculum and Data Committee

· Health and Safety Committee

We have had to restructure after Covid. This was an opportunity to improve our systems. We have ensured that the vulnerable pupils catch up by monitoring the pupil premium, Covid catch-up funding and the National Funding Grant

We have also ensured that children are safe and happy to come to school by reviewing the Child Protection Policy, Behaviour Policy, Attendance Policy, Covid Risk Assessments and developed the Personal Development curriculum with a focus on well-being.

Governors Body development plan 2021-2022

· To develop a clearer understanding of the difficulties the school faces around attendance and to facilitate change to improve pupil attendance after Covid.

‚ÄčThe Cherry Tree Trust has developed over the year so that it is ready to grow the size of the Trust. The LGB of Newall Green Primary School has monitored and evaluated practices so that children within the school can develop despite the impact of Covid. Trustees have assurances provided by the Governors who provide the vital on the ground link to Governance.
Governors have monitored staff well-being and the well-being of pupils. They are able to advise and challenge leadership so that school continues to be a supportive and safe place to work and learn. 
Lessons and boosting have been monitored and the impact has been seen through the close monitoring of the children's progress to their end of year targets for all children including the most vulnerable groups within school. The Governors have also monitored the impact of the grants that have been made available by the DfE so that tutoring and catch-up monies can be used to best effect.
