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).

 

Mrs Wendy Nicholls is the clerk to the governors and she can be contacted at school 01228 525756.
