The governing board oversees all decisions made about the running of the school. They support the head teacher in making the most appropriate choices regarding Teaching and Learning, Leadership and Management and School Finances.
Governing boards have a strong focus on four core strategic functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
- Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
- Ensuring Safeguarding policies are adhered to and reviewed regularly.
St Thomas Centre Nursery School is federated with 8 other Local Authority Maintained Nursery Schools. The Federation Governing Board can be seen here:
The 9 federation schools are split into smaller clusters, each served by a 'Scrutiny Committee'.
Our cluster Scrutiny Committee covers: St. Thomas Nursery School, Lillian de Lissa Nursery School and Newtown Nursery School.
