Governors' Information, Duties & Reports

The Roles and Responsibilities of the Governing Body

The instrument of Governance was reconstituted in September 2013. The Governing Body has general responsibility for the conduct of the Nursery School with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement and extended services that support families in the community.

Individual governors have no power or right to act on behalf of the governing body except where the whole governing body has delegated a specific function to that individual or where regulations specify that a function is to be exercised in a particular way.

The functions of the Governing Body fall broadly into the following categories:-

  • Staffing and Organisation
  • Curriculum
  • Building and Grounds
  • Children's Welfare
  • Admissions
  • Finance and Resource
