Introduction from the Chair of Governors

Dear Parents & Carers

It is my privilege to be Chair of Governors at Ysgol Greenhill School where I have served as a parent governor since 2013 and latterly as a Local Authority Governor. My own children having progressed to higher and further education in no small measure due to the hard work and commitment of our excellent teaching & support staff.

Currently the school face a number of challenges. As a school we have been working hard to reduce a deficit budget whilst at the same time drive improvements in teaching & learning. You may be aware that in the past 12 months Mr McGovern has with governors support conducted a top-down staffing restructure and at the same time introduced a ‘house’ structure for all pupils and staff. We have also conducted a school uniform review which has led to the phased introduction of our new school uniform, which we feel has been a success.

This has been a sustained and significant period of change and walking the corridors it certainly feels like there is a new energy within the school. However significant challenges remain; due to flat line budgets and inflationary pressures as well as declining school numbers we anticipate a growing budget deficit which will undue much of the good work we have already done. We also remain in Estyn monitoring and hope that a follow-up visit in the spring term will help us move forward as a school. These challenges are significant and can’t be understated. However, I am confident with Mr McGovern’s leadership and the support of governors, the Senior Leadership team and all staff that we can meet these challenges. I would appeal directly to you as parents and carers of our young people to work with us on this journey.
