There are non-staff governors in school almost every day of the week. They come in to help the children with their work or sometimes to help the staff. Some of the governors are able to take a day off work and come to see how well children are learning. They talk to children in assemblies about the job of a governor and how much they love doing it. This is some of the things that they have done:
- Governors spent a day in the school looking at Maths and talking to pupils to find out what they think about the subject.
- Governors came to visit the school to look at English and to interview pupils about their perceptions of life at Sholing Junior School.
- Governors visited the school to look at writing, listen to a selection of children read, work with the school council and to review our provision for disadvantaged children.
- Governors visited classrooms to see how we are teaching spelling and interviewed pupils about the new strategies that they are using.
