This is currently carried out by a Governing Body. Members of the Governing Body make important decisions about the school for example teaching & learning, safeguarding, policies, recruitment, building & premises, health & safety and financial & budgetary matters. They ensure the nursery is governed in accordance with legal requirements and they support and challenge the Headteacher.
If you would like to know more or are interested in being a Parent Governor, please let the Headteacher know.
