Governing Board Membership 2016 2017

Governors take part in a comprehensive induction programme and regular training to keep their knowledge and skills up to date. All governors perform these duties on a voluntary basis.

The full governing body generally meet monthly to address key issues, set strategic direction, review policies and act as a critical friend.
Specifically the governors will:
Provide a Strategic View
  • Decide what the school should achieve
  • Set suitable aims and framework needed
  • Agree and review policies
  • Set and monitor the budget
  • Ensure accountability
  • Deal quickly and professionally with any complaints or concerns
  • Explain decisions and actions taken
  • Challenge, ask questions and seek information to improve standards
  • Monitor and evaluate provision
  • Be familiar with the school through visits and taking part in school life
  • Develop sound working relationships with the staff
Non-staff governors visit Nursery on a regular basis, and have the opportunity to get involved in key events and activities throughout the year.
Governors are elected for a four year term of office, with elections held for the Chair and Vice Chair positions every two years. Parent governors are elected by parents of children attending the nursery, and staff governors are elected by Nursery staff. Co-opted governors may apply to become governors directly to the school, and once satisfactory checks have been completed, are voted on by the governing body. Local Authority governors are placed with the school by the Council’s Governor Services team as and when a vacancy arises. Associate members are also invited to join the governing body.
