Governor update April 2017

Lady Bankes Governing Body Federation


It is now a year since the governing bodies of both Lady Bankes schools federated.  As you will remember, this means that, while each school remains separate, there is now one governing body across both schools.  This has allowed both schools to work closer together for the benefit of all our children.  A great example of this was the fantastic “Look Who’s Talking” competition and the Science Home Challenge, both of which were a huge success.  The move from year 2 to year 3 is another area where our children have benefitted from this closer working relationship. We also now have one inclusion manager, Mrs Barcessat, who is doing an outstanding job across both schools to develop a shared approach and practice.


Like all schools, the budget is getting increasingly challenging. Having a federation has already allowed us to be more efficient. Finally we are thrilled to have appointed strong leadership teams for both schools who are already making a significant impact on our children’s future.
