A superb piece of communication, well written with no jargon and attractively laid out. It contained a vast amount of information of interest to parents.

It was an account of a governing body doing its job, as a team, with a strong sense of purpose as well as pride in what had been achieved. It showed a governing body at the heart of a wider community of parents and neighbourhood, working very openly and with a great deal of direct involvement of parents and dialogue with them about important issues...it demonstrated that an open and successful school can share with parents its difficulties as well as achievements, knowing that it will increase and not diminish their trust.
