Donkey! | aclerkselbow

Name of Governor – C. Hristmas
Date of visit: December 12th
Staff/subject area visited: KS1 Nativity – Donkey for Sale
Meeting to be reported to: FGB at some point but now that Ofsted have been and gone I may not bother…
Focus of Visit eg School Development Plan area
The Nativity is a yearly celebration of the birth of Jesus which brings together KS1 and their parents and family so that the latter can see their progeny dressed up as angels, kings, sheep, chickens, and so forth. The starring roles are ones, I imagine, which are keenly sought after. Baaaa. Humbug.

We are a Church School….

Those of a certain age can finish that sentence themselves and will now have an earworm. The Elbow does not apologise for this because like a musical earworm the stuff you hear and stuff you read can invade your thoughts and chew away…which not always a good thing.

Earlier this week The Elbow was reading a blog about a leadership journey to outstanding. Whoo hoo whoop congrat-u-lations. Knowing from personal experience how hard it is to get to these lofty heights congratulations are offered by The Elbow unreservedly. Anyway, this leadership journey blog was amazing, and embedded in it was…

The Resolution Revolution Pt 1 | aclerkselbow

New year resolutions usually begin in the New Year but The Elbow has decided to start hers early and so my friends shall you…nothing like being prepared now is there?

Resolution 1

Use the diary properly. That’s check at least two weeks in advance for meeting dates not a week because a week is too late. A week is always too late. Especially if your first meeting is in the first week of term…

Monday, Monday | aclerkselbow

Gooood morning world it’s a brand new day…go on, once more with feeling! The Elbow woke up at silly o’clock in a mild panic yesterday as she realised there are x sets of minutes to type and x more to go this week and only y days to go before the end of term. There is a real need to do some prioritising and fortunately there was a long train journey ahead yesterday so lots of lists and creative stuff could be done and clarity found. The Elbow likes thinking on trains…

As is The Elbow’s habit a weird variety of questions popped into her head as she sat on the train pondering about…
