Governor Strategy Consultation 2021

An invitation from our Chair of Governors, Sue Bradley-Jones.

Dear Stakeholders,

This letter from the school Governors invites you to comment on their proposals for the school’s strategic direction in the next four years.

Every school is expected to have a ‘strategic direction’ and one of the main requirements of the school governors is to set that direction, in consultation with the head teacher and the staff of the school.

Each year governors and staff set new individual priorities for the School Improvement Plan,(SIP), in response to currently perceived needs, such as improving the standard of writing, ensuring that SEN children are well supported and stretching high achievers.

A number of one-off successful initiatives have also been led by the governors, such as wrap-around care, the new building and currently an upgraded heating system for the school.

But in order to meet the requirement for a longer term strategic direction for the school, the Governors are now in the process of developing a four year strategy, with some overarching aims, which will run from September 2021, and will be implemented mainly through the SIP. We have carefully considered ways the school could be enhanced and strengthened, and what our aspirations for the school should be. We have shortlisted in the following document a number of potential priorities for the new strategy and would welcome any comments about these, or more general suggestions you may have about the school’s future direction.

 Please could you respond by Monday 5th July, either by email to:

or by letter to the “Chair of governors, c/o the school office, North Nibley C. Of E. (Aided) Primary School, The Street, North Nibley, Nr Dursley, Gloucestershire, GL11 6DL.

With best regards, 

Sue Bradley-Jones, 

Chair of Governors
