Governing Body

The Governor’s at Stoneygate Nursery School are representative of our local community. Some are elected by the Local Education Authority (LEA), some are members of the local community and/or its organisations, some are members of staff, and some are parents of children accessing services at Stoneygate Nursery School.

Governor’s have three main roles:

To provide strategic direction for the school
To act as a critical friend to the headteacher
To ensure accountability

All governors are appointed at the Full Governors meeting.
