Chair of Governors Blog


Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,

 I would like to welcome you to the new school year 2017/18. The start of term has been full of exciting developments, including participation in Isle of Wight Day, the girls' football team receiving the silver medal in the IOW Danone Cup Finals and the Queensgate Run.

 Attendance is currently above 97%, with several classes achieving 100% weekly attendance, which is a fantastic achievement. There is a strong link between regular attendance and pupil progress so it is important to maintain this good start throughout the school year.

 The Board of Governors received the resignation of Margaret Webster, our local authority governor and are in the process of identifying a replacement. We would like to thank Margaret for all her hard work and dedication to Queensgate over the past few years. We also have Parent Governor vacancies on the board and would encourage anyone interested in applying to contact Angie Selle (
