Key Priorities

As a part of one of our three core functions of the governing body we work alongside the school to set its vision, ethos and strategic direction. As a part of this role, we support the school in developing its school improvement plan, which sets out the priorities for the upcoming year. During our governors meetings we receive feedback from the headteacher and discuss steps which have been taken to achieve these targets. Throughout the year, we complete monitoring visits, which are completed in pairs linked to the school improvement priorities. These involve discussions with: subject leaders, book looks and discussions with children. These visits are fed back to the full governing body. 


The key priorities we are supporting The Gateway with for 2020 - 2021 are:

  • Reviewing the curriculum to ensure it meets the requirement of the new Ofsted framework.
  • Developing the teaching of multiplication tables. 
  • Developing and enhancing STEM learning across the school. 
  • Further developing classroom monitor as a tool for assessment.
  • Ensuring the new RHSE curriculum is implemented fully across the curriculum. 
  • Upskilling new Governors.
  • Continuing to develop parental involvement and engagement in children's learning in the EYFS.
