PERSHORE HIGH SCHOOL Governors Report to Parents 2007

How do we make sure all

How do we make sure all pupils attend their lessons and behave well?Attendance is monitored closely by our attendance officer. Her job includes:phoning parents if a student's absence has not been explained;carrying out spot checks on attendance at lessons.This system means that general school attendance and that in lessons is very good and hasimproved significantly over the last four years. The school also has clear and efficient systemsfor rewarding good behaviour and for dealing with students when their conduct falls short ofour expectations.The school has a very strong pastoral system of year groups, backed up by a new Housesystem. Positive attitudes are seen in lessons from the vast majority of students, and there areharmonious relationships with staff. Discussions with students and observation of theirbehaviour, work and attitudes show that the majority have a strong moral code. New studentssettle very effectively into a friendly and welcoming environment and there are clear inductionprocedures. Visitors to the school regularly comment on its calm and purposeful workingatmosphere.What have pupils told us about the school, and what have we done as a result?Students are swift to offer their views on the school and we have always responded positivelyto their requests for greater student involvement in decision making. This has led to a moredemocratically elected school council, students as Associate Governors, pupil involvement inour self evaluation and School Development Planning processes, and their regularinvolvement in the appointment of new staff at all levels.Changes have been made to the food offered in the canteen as a result of comments bystudents, a SNAC consultation group has been formed and a Chef Manager appointed. Thishas resulted in the complete refurbishment of the dining room and entirely healthier eatingoptions (including the provision of free fruit and filtered drinking water).How are we working with parents and the community?Parents are fully involved in the learning of their children, having easy access to staff andbeing contacted at an early stage when there are any issues to discuss. Their views aregathered through questionnaires that gauge their level of satisfaction with the school and thisprocess is soon to be placed on the school's website. A termly Parents' Forum with theHeadteacher is held, and the Friends of Pershore High School arranges numerous social andeducational events. Each October parents attend the annual meeting with Governors wherethey are invited to participate in small group discussions. Further communication is madethrough a monthly school newsletter that is again provided both in paper format and on line.Particular attention is paid to the quality of links with parents at key points of transition, such asYear 7 to 8, GCSE option choices and Year 11 to Sixth Form.We work hard to maintain close links between the school and its local community. Consultationwith partner schools in the Technology College, Training School and extended servicesprogrammes offers increased opportunities for collaboration across the school's catchmentarea. The further development of closer community links is a vital future action point.
