Governance Files

As of 2nd December 2021, Camrose Early Years Centre joined the Foundations for Children Nursery Schools Federation, with Croyland Nursery School and Highfield Nursery School in Wellingborough and Parklands Nursery School in Northampton. The federation has one governing body and an Executive Headteacher working across the four schools.

The governing body sets the strategic direction of the Centre and the federation as a whole, and holds the Executive Headteacher and senior management team to account for the quality of our provision. They are ‘critical friends’ of the Centre and support and challenge rigorously in relation to all aspects of the Centre’s work, including: compliance with current legislation; monitoring of school budgets and progress against annual Federation Development Plan targets; reviewing policies & procedures and challenging these where appropriate. They work closely with the Executive Headteacher and staff and undertake visits, individually, to the Centre on a regular basis to review activities, to ensure they understand what goes on, and why.

Full Governing Body meetings take place at least four times a year (once per term). In addition, two sub-committees – Resources Committee (dealing with Finance, Personnel, Premises and Health & Safety issues) and Curriculum, Teaching, Learning & Outcomes Committee (CTLO) – each meet at least three times per year. These debates and outcomes feed into the Full Governing Body meetings.
