Following on from last term the Joint Governor Working Party (JGWP) from Iver Village Infant and Junior Schools met on Monday 7th January. At this meeting we discussed and agreed the ‘Terms of Reference’ to ensure that the group has a clear agenda (see attached document). The group will be looking at all options on how the two schools might work more collaboratively in the interests of all our pupils moving forward.
We would like to begin this process by gathering the initial views of parents/carers about how if appropriate, the schools could work together more closely and will be holding an information evening on Wednesday 23rd January at 7pm. This meeting will be held in the hall at Iver Village Junior School.
If you are unable to attend the information evening but would like your views heard, Buckinghamshire County Council have set up an email address for you to use. The address is: IVSfeedback@buckscc.gov.uk. BCC will pass these emails onto the working group so that they can be considered when discussing the way forward for the schools. Alternatively, you can write to either school with questions or comments.
All parents/carers will receive an update following every Joint Governor Working Party meeting and there will be a second parent information evening towards the end of the Spring Term to hear your views.
We are very grateful for your continued support and your assistance to shape the future of our village schools. It is important that we work with you and continue to provide the best education for your children. We look forward to seeing you at the information evening on 23rd January.
We will be holding an Information Evening for parents on Wednesday 16th January at 6pm. Our aim is to explain about tests the children will be sitting and show examples of the types of questions to expect. We will also show parents how they can support this work and help their children at home.
We have had very limited replies from our choir singers as to who is attending our Carol Concert on Thursday evening. Please let us know if your child will be able to attend the concert so we can have an idea of numbers and who to have in rehearsals this week.
The Carol Concert will be held at St Peters Church in the Iver Village High Street from 6pm to 7pm.
We have managed to secure 12 more places for the Bikeability Course, taking place in January for Year 5 and 6s.
Places are now available to buy on the SchoolMoney system via the Shop tab. If you have any issues logging in to your School money account, please call the school reception.
For more information, please see the full letter, these will be sent in paper form to the children who book the places.

To all parents/carers of Iver Village Infants and Iver Village Junior Schools,
Last week, 28th November 2018, at the Infant school there was a parents’ meeting to discuss recent events at Iver Village Infant School and plans for the future. Both Nicola Raher and Jill Digweed (the headteachers from the Infant and Junior schools) were in attendance along with Ben Dunne (Head of Strategic Improvement) from Buckinghamshire County Council and Stafford Salt the Infant School Chair of Governors.
Ben Dunne started the meeting by explaining who he was and that he was there to help. The primary purpose of the meeting was to answer parents’ questions on recent events. Ben explained that it was important for parents to know the future of their children’s education and that they would be consulted going forward.
It was agreed at the meeting that both schools would send out a letter to parents with the questions raised at the meeting to ensure everyone was kept fully informed. Below are the questions that were asked and the answers that were given along with details on how both schools plan to work more closely in the future.
Please click on the letter for the full details.
As is tradition in Iver Village Junior School we have a party at the end of the calendar year to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of the next.
This year, every year group will have their party on Wednesday 19th December, the last day of the school term. Any fantastic party needs food and we would be very grateful if you could help contribute. So that we don't get too much of one type we ask you to bring, please see your child's copy of of the letter to see what they have been asked to bring.
This is where we'll post all school news and updates. If you require paper copies of any information on our website then please contact Mrs Goggin in our school reception.
