Meet Our Governing Body

Our governing body is responsible for working with the nursery school to ensure that it delivers good quality early education. Together with the Head Teacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they ensure that the nursery school continues to improve its performance, the key roles of the governors are to;

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction,
  • To hold the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff,
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.

All our Governors hold a current Disclosure and Barring Services check.
