Braithwaite School News

Two things: firstly, at the meeting of the Local Governing Body (LGB) on 23 November Colin Ashurst was elected as chair, replacing Martin Head. We are very grateful to Martin who has been Chair of the Local Governing Body and Chair of the Finance Committee. He has played an important role working with Mrs Laker, the wider staff team and the governing body over the last 5 years, particularly stepping into the role as Co-chair after the last Ofsted inspection and over the period of conversion to join the Good Shepherd Multi Academy Trust. Thank you so much Martin for all you have done.

Secondly, the LGB has decided to have a go at publishing a newsletter once a term to share information on their work with parents. Here it is… LGB newsletter 1 NovDec 17

PCC Awayday

We had a PCC away day at Rydal Hall to spend time together thinking about the future of the church in this parish. It was a good day, lots of ideas and energy. One of the activities gave us a chance to explore our dreams for the church. Being open to all was a strong theme as was involving children and families.

Drawing pictures allowed us to work together creatively and share our hopes and dreams for the church

Notes from the day and a paper setting out ideas on priorities and next steps have been circulated and will be discussed as the next PCC
