September Governor Blog: Welcome back to school

Date: 4th Sep 2022 @ 3:37pm

Welcome to this new academic year 2022-2023!


As a parent Governor at Boughton Heath Academy it is fantastic to see children go back to school with a sense of normality!


And as we start this new year, the governing body and I would like to take the opportunity to thank the school for navigating so well the last 2 years. It has been good to see the school leadership and staff reacting to the feedback from parents after the first wave of covid and providing some great teaching despite the challenging circumstances. This meant not only happy parents and children as we found out from the surveys and interactions at school but also strong academic outcome. Indeed 97% of year 6 children met the expected standards in reading, 89% in writing and 91% in maths, which is well above the national averages (respectively 74%, 69% and 71%). Well done to the school and pupils!


We would also like to thank the PTA and the volunteers for the very fun summer party! It generated £3,382 of funds for the school and was also a wonderful opportunity for families, staff and the community to come together. 


This year will be another exciting year at Boughton Heath as the school is looking at finalising its new vision and we would like to thank all of you who took the time to feed into the thinking. This will be very valuable when governors and the school meet end of September to further work on the vision.


The school will also continue to embed the great new curriculum developed last year (I encourage you to find out more on the school website where you will be able to understand the great materials children go through at school. I have no doubt my son will love learning about the Lake District and Egypt this year!). 


Finally we would like to welcome Miss Parrot, Miss Milton and Mrs Xiong to the school and wish all the best to Mrs Sumnall as she starts her new role as Vice Principal of the school. 


Here is to another great year!




Happy to hear from you!
