Meet our Governors

The governing body of Newlaithes Nursery & Infant School exists to ensure high standards of achievement and pastoral care for all children and members of the school community by:-

 

  • setting the school's vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school and ensuring its money is well spent.

 

To this end, the governing body is made up of three committees; the full governing body (FGB), on which all governors sit, the finance, staffing and premises committee (FSP) and the teaching, learning and community committee (TLC).
