GOVERNOR ETHOS AND VISION QUESTIONNAIRE
You may remember me mentioning in the Autumn update letter earlier this term that the role of the local governing body is to think strategically and longer term and that we would be consulting with children, parents, staff and the local community in order to refresh our school values, ethos and vision over the coming months.
Part of the first phase of this process is to invite you to complete a very short and simple questionnaire, giving you a chance to describe the school as you see it now and how you think it should be in the future. You can access the questionnaire via the school website, or there are paper copies available from the school office, if you would prefer to contribute this way.
As with the end of year parental survey last term, we will be offering a prize to the class with the most parent survey responses. There will be extra playtime for the children of that class.
We will use the data collected from this to input into a workshop we will be running on Wednesday 1st November at 7pm to further develop the vision of the school. We hope as many of you as possible will be able to attend. Please look out for more details shortly.
We thank you all for your input into the process.

QE MEETS THE QUEEN
On Friday 18th November, 16 children from Queen Eleanor’s were invited to Guildford Cathedral to take part in the Golden Jubilee celebrations and meet Her Majesty the Queen. Mrs Wilkinson and Mr Blackburn took a group of children from Year 5 &6 to take part in a workshop highlighting the educational programmes the Cathedral runs for local schools.
It was a tremendous honour to be invited and the children were able to spend a few minutes alone with the Queen and during her tour of the workshop. Some of the children were also interviewed for Eagle Radio and Mr Blackburn was on the BBC Radio Surrey breakfast programme.
The pictures from the Queen’s visit our on our picture gallery page and the audio files can be downloaded using the link below.
