The role of the Governing body is to offer support as well as critical observations to the Headteacher and management team of the nursery, in vetting policies and procedures, planning and finance. Training courses are available via the local council to educate governors in the latest rules and regulations relating to Nurseries, Children's Centres and the law.
We are fortunate to have an excellent group of volunteer members who support the school and dedicate a great deal of time to Governing body meetings. They also individually take the time to undertake monitoring observations of the children at work at least once a term.
At our annual Business meeting in September we elect the Chair, Vice Chair and other officials. There are 6 further meetings throughout the year, ie. 2 per term, which are held during the evenings and usually last about 2-3 hours.
