How lovely it has been to see all the pupils back in school today 😀

We now have a lovely new post box just inside the main school doors for parents to pass any forms or information to the school office without having to come into the school. The office staff will collect the post in the morning and afternoon.

Please remember we are unable to accept any cash payments at the moment. School meals must be paid for via the online system.

Many Thanks

Wednesday 10th June – Governors’ Meeting Report

The Governing Body came together on Wednesday 10th June 2020. Like so many other people and groups, the unusual circumstances of 2020 led us to hold this particular meeting virtually. We started by approving the minutes of our last meeting, which was held on Tuesday 3rd March, just a few weeks before schools were ‘closed’ and most children started to learn remotely.

The Governors first welcomed three new governors to the team. Steve Hemingway - parent governor, Azu Ndulue - parent governor and Donna Wass - co-opted governor.

We then moved on to hear from Mrs Johnson, CwR’s Head of Business and Operations, who updated us on finance. Forecasts for the school continue to look promising but with uncertain times for society in general and a gradual decline in the number of primary school age children in York and across the UK over the next few years (which brings implications for school funding), finances will – as always – have to be watched carefully.

Mrs Wright then gave us an update on what is being done to safeguard the wellbeing of CwR children in (and, now more than ever, also beyond) school. It’s clear that Mrs Wright, Ms Dearlove and all the CwR staff have been working particularly hard on this since the ‘lockdown’ and we cannot thank them enough for their efforts.

Mr Herbert then gave us his Head’s Report. It was very clear that he and the staff have been working tirelessly since March to effectively ‘reinvent school’ and ensure that learning continues for all the children, regardless of whether they can physically attend school or not. Thanks to these efforts, CwR has been able to stay open for key worker children throughout this period, including during what would normally be the Easter holiday.

It must have taken a Herculean effort from all the teaching and support staff, not least our dedicated cleaning team, to keep the school functioning safely in this new age of social distancing and particularly to prepare this week for the partial re-opening to the youngest and oldest pupils. Mr Herbert and other staff have also worked hard to keep parents informed about an ever-changing situation in recent months (something which the several parent governors in the meeting could confirm first-hand!). Parental and pupil feedback, on the return this week and more generally, has been excellent, with one parent praising the staff for “doing a super job of explaining it all to them whilst not making it too scary or different”. Mr Herbert relayed that the children themselves had also been brilliant in following all the advice on keeping safe in school. Parents and carers at home have obviously played a massive role in supporting home-schooling recently and preparing eligible children for a safe return to school; they also deserve considerable credit!

The governors ended the meeting with an emphatic “thank you” to Mr Herbert, the brilliant and extraordinarily dedicated staff which he leads by example, and all the pupils, parents and carers of Clifton with Rawcliffe community who have played their part. All have risen to the occasion and will no doubt continue to do so as the country and its schools gradually – hopefully! – return to normality as soon as possible. In the meantime, the governors wish everyone a safe and happy summer term.

Dear Parents/Guardians

We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately

The Governing body met on Tuesday 3rd March 2020. The minutes of the previous meeting held on Monday 2nd December 2019 were approved as a correct record of the meeting. The governing body then invited, approved and welcomed Mr John Sharpe as a governor. John has kindly agreed to act as our Chair of Governors during an important time of transition for the governing body.

Firstly, we heard from our Head of Business and Operations, Mrs Johnson, who delivered a finance update for the school.

Mrs Wright then updated the governors on the latest advice regarding Safeguarding within school. The governors would like to thank everything that the CwR staff and wider community do to keep students safe.

Finally, Mr Herbert gave us his Headteacher’s Report. He updated the governors on the important work that is being undertaken on the CwR curriculum.

We thank Mr Herbert and the CwR staff for all their hard work so far this academic year and wish everyone in the school community a successful and happy Spring.
