Spotlight on Governors

September 14, 2018

Last night, all available school governors met for the first full governing body meeting (FGB) of the year. A full governing body meeting takes place 4 times a year at The Lea and is a key meeting in helping to quality assure all aspects of the school, setting the school’s aims and approving its policies. Whilst a position as a school governor is voluntary, a school cannot run without a governing body and at The Lea, we are always grateful for the selfless efforts from our team of governors.

At last night’s meeting, Mark Collins – who has been Chair of Governors for the past 3 years – ended his term and stepped down. Beth Featherby, who is a parent governor, was voted in as his replacement on an interim basis until the next FGB meeting on the 29th November. On behalf of all parents and staff, we would like to thank Mark for his efforts as Chair.

If you want to know more about the governors or are interested in becoming involved, please come and speak to Mr Berry.

Meet the Teacher

September 14, 2018

We hope you found the meet the teacher meetings useful. For parents who were unable to attend, this term’s curriculum maps and timetables for your child’s class are being sent out today.

A reminder that both Reception and Nursery meet the teacher meetings are taking place next Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.

A reminder to all parents to please park sensibly and with consideration to our neighbours at both drop off and pick up times. Unfortunately, some cars are being parked across the corners of the pavements at the top of Rye Hill. This is both dangerous to pedestrians and cars turning into or out of the road. Our pupils’ safety is our priority; therefore, we would appreciate your co-operation. Thank you.


September 13, 2018

At The Lea, we are committed to the safeguarding of all children from potential risk or harm. If you have any safeguarding concerns please do not hesitate to contact Mr Berry (designated safeguarding lead) or Mrs Cross (deputy designated safeguarding lead).
