Message from Parent Governor Mr Amadou Jammeh
Hello, it’s great to meet you here and thanks for taking the time to read Ranelagh Primary School’s Newsletter. Please let me take this opportunity to introduce myself as one of the parent Governors of Ranelagh Primary School representing the amazing and hardworking parents whose children are learning at Ranelagh. I have crossed paths with many of you on school runs, parents’ evenings, summer and winter fairs, but never really had the chance to formally introduce myself as your representative on Ranelagh Primary School’s Local Advisory Board (LAB), which performs the following key roles:
- Setting the strategic direction of the school
- Ensuring accountability of senior leadership team of the school
- Providing support and challenging the leadership team of the school on all issues that affect the learning and welfare of pupils.
- Monitoring and evaluating the school’s performance
- Ensuring that the school is a safe, healthy and an inclusive environment.
As a Link Governor, I have specific responsibility to work with and support the school’s senior leadership team in their efforts to continue to embed empowered leadership, through self-reflection and school analysis to drive strategic decisions. This is a role I enjoy very much as it resonates with many of my own responsibilities as Director of Studies for Newcastle University in London.
I attended the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meeting on Tuesday 5th February 2019. The PTA is doing an amazing job supporting the pupils, parents, and staff of Ranelagh Primary School. It was an absolute privilege to hear them speak so passionately about many of the wonderful projects and events they have delivered at Ranelagh. I am delighted to inform you that they are working on staging many more exciting projects and events in the future. Thanks once again and please come and say hello next time we bump into each other on the school runs.
