What our Governors say about us
Our Governors visit school and REP throughout the year. Here are some comments and feedback from our Governors following their visits:
'In the lesson we saw a clear emphasis on each pupil’s personal New Horizon goal and the plenary at the end being focused independently on each pupil. This works across the whole class which are each learning completely different things due to different Horizons targets, yet all within a single lesson. The ability of the teachers to do this was amazing!' (J Schwartz)
'The school was vibrant, clean and well maintained. I witnessed use of the new Smart Boards and the VR headsets and can see the potential benefits of using these in lessons to add depth and opportunity to learning. Pupils thoughts and opinions were sought in every session observed, with choices being made as independently as possible.' 'Seeing them thrive, have fun, and really be at the centre of their learning...' (S Oliver)
'While waiting for the teacher to arrive for the lesson, the pupils spent time saying hello and chatting with their Marriotts classmates, which was great to observe. It highlights how well the joint curriculum offer and reciprocal arrangements are working for all pupils involved.' (A Drury)
'SLT are a very good team, who work together and have a bond which shines through. They work together, communicate and understand the wider objectives of the school. They are passionate and driven to deliver for the pupils and this shows in everything they do. The pupils are at the heart of everything.'
'I am blown away by the commitment, the knowledge, and the energy shown by all staff I meet, from support teams, through class teachers, to SLT. Your level of knowledge and care is humbling, and the personalised learning you ensure pupils achieve is truly impressive! (S Jarvis)
'Lonsdale staff all play such an amazing part in our students’ lives and education. They understand each student’s needs, and staff are always pushing the boundaries as to what IS possible for all of our students. I always see or learn something new when I’m in school. I never know what I will see next time.' (C Green)
