Governors

Welcome from the Governors

Governors are responsible for the strategic governance of the school to ensure that it delivers the best possible education and care. We do this by ensuring the vision and strategic direction is clearly defined, the educational performance of the nursery is supported and the financial resources are used effectively. 

The Headteacher and staff provide the Governing Board with information about the children’s life at various points throughout the year and we review this carefully. We feel able to challenge and support in a positive way, as a critical friend, and this is welcomed by the school and the Headteacher.

We have agreed a Code of Conduct and do not have separate committees because we are a relatively small group.

This means that we all have a good awareness of the different areas and we tend to make decisions as a whole Governing Board. We do have link governors who take a special interest in specific curriculum or governance areas. 

 

We share and support the general philosophy of the Headteacher and staff to provide a safe, caring environment where our children and their families feel they belong. We interact with parents at appropriate times and enjoy coming to the school to support this fundamental stage of children's development.

We are aware, at all times, of our role in monitoring the school through data and through regular discussion at meetings.

If you are interested in our work please  contact us through the school: we will be happy to meet you.
