All schools must have a governing body as required by government regulations. It is made up of parents, representatives from the local community and members of the School and Day Care staff. All members give their time voluntarily.
Our aim is to assist in providing the best early years education for your children. We are responsible for the recruitment of our staff, approving school policies and supporting the implementation of the plans set out by our staff to aid the teaching and learning of our children.
As parents and carers you are welcome to raise any issues or concerns through your Parent Governor representatives who you can contact through your school’s administrator.
HOW OFTEN ARE THE MEETINGS?
The full governing body meets 3 times a year (once during each school term) to hear reports from the Headteacher and his staff on the schools’ performance which we question, discuss and refine any proposals. In addition to this, the following committees also meet 3 times throughout the year:
THE FINANCE AND PREMISES COMMITTEE
The aim of the Finance and Premises Committee is to assist the Headteacher with the detail of the financial aspects of the overall "Strategic Plan". The committee is also responsible for monitoring the condition of the premises and ensuring that any plans for developing the physical space are considered in line with the values and aims of the Federation.
THE PERSONNEL AND CURRICULUM COMMITTEE
The Personnel and Curriculum committee is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS) and ensuring that children have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. The committee is also responsible for working with the Headteacher to manage and monitor any issues relating to staffing and recruitment.
