Teaching and Learning – monitoring how the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is taught, evaluated and resourced.

Property – Health & Safety – Monitoring the building and making sure we have a safe environment for our children and adults alike.

Finance & Personnel – Overseeing the school budget and staff welfare/issues and recruitment.

Our governor’s support the school by:-
