Curriculum/Resources Sub Committee:

The combined Curriculum, Resources and Premises Sub Committees meet once a term and feeds back to the Full Governing Body (which also meets once a term) with any matters arising.    The Governors help to determine the vision and strategic direction of the nursery school, ensuring children and staff are safe while both challenging and supporting the nursery in making any necessary improvements.    The Governing Body hold the Headteacher to account for the performance of the nursery school and its children and the performance management of staff.  They oversee the financial performance of the nursery and ensure money is well spent.
