Following the success of our January 2019 Ofsted inspection we would like to thank the highly effective School Improvement Board for its work to support the school in its journey. The school has now appointed a full governing body to support Montsaye Academy in its next exciting stage of development.
Message from Robyn Allen, Chair of Governors – October 2022
After an incredibly busy start to the new school year, I have finally had the time to sit down and write an update. Governors have already met in September to kick start the year, and it was lovely to sit back and hear the positive stories that came out of the results days over the Summer, but now is the time to build on those successes.
As a Governing Body we are now (finally!) back into the school regularly to be able to support the school with hitting the ground running after the Summer break. Whilst we are still utilising remote meetings when required, it is great to be back face to face. You will see a Governor presence at an increased number of school events this year, and we hope it becomes the ‘norm’ to see us over the coming months – look out for the orange lanyards!
We are incredibly proud of Montsaye and are committed to ensuring it is a great place to learn, to teach, to develop and to be part of the community we are creating. We work closely with the school’s senior leaders to ensure we are all working towards the school’s vision, and we live and breathe Excellence, Resilience & Aspiration.
