School Governors

School Governors

The Governing body is a supportive and highly motivated group of people who work very hard to make our school the very best that it can be.

They have agreed a strategic vision for the school: Central Governors’ Strategic Vision (pdf)

The governors are responsible, together with the Local Authority, for ensuring the efficient management of the school.

This includes allocating places to children, appointing staff and approving curriculum policies. They work in close partnership with the Head Teacher, Helen Fearn, to ensure that children make as much progress during their time at nursery as possible and that our school meets the needs of the local community.

The school reconstituted its governing body in line with new requirements in September 2015

The school federated with Ashgate Nursery School and reconstituted in September 2016
