Avening School is a small to medium sized village school in the heart of Gloucestershire.  It is a maintained school and as such the Governing Body has a duty to support, guide, advise and monitor the strategic direction the school takes in accordance with local and governmental policy.  It does this via regular Full Governing Body meetings supported by two sub-committees.  Standards, looking at Policy and Performance, together with Resources which oversees Finance, Funding, Staffing and Health & Safety.

During the period January-March 2017, governors made 28 logged visits to the school (excluding pop-ins) covering a variety of activities.  Regularly governors (and other parents) accompany children on school trips and sporting activities around the local area.  We have seen traffic surveys completed this quarter, and several learning walks and bedtime story visits.

The period April-June 2017 saw another 28 visits to the school.  We sat in on a school council meeting where the children worked on a fantastic new logo for an exciting, forthcoming fundraising campaign.  SATs tests were covered from an invigilation point of view, one of our governors led the cycle training undertaken by our Year 5/6 children.  Together with attendance at the school stall during the village party and very regular building and H&S visits, the period continues to be pretty busy.
