Our Governors

All state schools in the UK have a Governing Body. 

Ours is made up of parents, staff and community people who give their time for free to help us provide the best possible service to the children and families of Rosemary Nursery School. 

Governors have a very responsible role which includes agreeing budgets, plans and policies, reviewing the school’s work, and helping to appoint staff.

The Full Governing Body meets six times per year, Each governor has a specific role in supporting the school. For instance, we have a linked governor for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, one for Safeguarding and Child Protection, one for Health and Safety, one for staff well-being and professional development, one for finance, one for children in care and one for partnerships.

Although governors don’t get paid, they are entitled to time off work for meetings. Crèches, refreshments, training and any travel costs are provided.

 Being a governor is challenging but rewarding and is a great addition to a CV.

To find out more about becoming a governor, or to contact our governors, please contact the clerk by e-mail at clerk.rosemary.n@bristol-schools.uk or phone the nursery 0117 9031467.
