Vacancy for a Co-opted Governor
The Governing Body of Priory School is looking for a committed person to join Priory’s Governing Body as a Co-opted Governor.
We would particularly welcome applications from people with experience in Finance and/or Legal.
The Governing Body of Priory School is made up of Parents, Local Authority, Staff, Trust/Foundation and Co-opted Governors.
The one essential requirement is an interest in, and commitment to, the education of students. Governors are ordinary people, drawn from many areas of society. They need to be able to devote time to getting to know the school well and be available to support and challenge it. The skills you have can be very useful to Priory’s Governing Body.
Full details of the post and an application form can be downloaded Below.
Closing date for receipt of applications: Midday on Monday 30th November 2017
INSET Day Friday 22nd September
Please note that Friday 22nd September is a staff training (INSET) day and the school is therefore closed for students.
Open Evening 2017
Thank you to everyone who attended our Open Evening on Thursday 21 September. Please find the main presentation here. If you were unable to attend or would like an opportunity to see the school please contact Wendy Francis (Admissions Officer) to book onto a school tour. Further information can be found on this website and in the school prospectus.
Office 365 For Education
We have had a number of enquiries from parents and carers regarding Office 365 for Education, which is free to UK schools and offers significant benefits including cloud storage, collaborative working and licences for desktop Office applications. Please note that whilst implementation of O365 forms part of our School Development Plan for this academic year, signup for students is not yet available as Priory's network management team is still working on its integration with our existing online systems. We hope to gradually roll out O365 to staff and students over the next few months. When it is fully available to students we will of course provide full signup details on this website.
Issues With Parent Pay - UPDATE
Wednesday 20 September 12:06pm: We apologise for the Parent Pay / dinner money problems your child may have experienced this week. Chartwells have informed us that the issue is now fixed, and the tills are registering dinner money top ups from Parent Pay. Please be aware that your child’s balance may not have changed much during Friday / Monday / Tuesday, so when the till purchases go through you may find that your child’s balance is adjusted for three days at once. This may mean that some children have less money than they are expecting, so please log in to Parent Pay today and check the balance with your child, topping up if necessary.
If any children still experience problems with dinner money top ups, please make them aware they should come to Reception so their names can be reported to Chartwells and they can be subbed lunch. We don’t want anyone to go hungry.
We are monitoring the situation, and will update you if anything changes.
