Governors’ Day at St Luke’s

As part of our regular governors’ annual schedule of visits, St Luke’s held our ‘Governors’ Day’ on 12th January.  Governors’ Day is an opportunity for governors to participate in lessons, view pupils’ books, join in Collective Worship, and eat with pupils at the Top Table at lunch time and speak to pupils.  The day shows the governors how the school is implementing our School Development Plan.

We are currently reviewing our vision, and the governors participated in a Vision and Values exercise.  






Great to see the willingness from pupils to help lead assembly and the comfort with which a whole range of them played leadership and public speaking roles (including leading prayer), with little preparation or nervousness.
