Our Committee

We are a charity and rely on a committee of volunteers to run the Pre-School’s financial and administrative affairs. The committee meets once a term.

All parents and carers are encouraged to take an active role in the committee and/or come along to meetings – without volunteers the Pre-School will not be able to continue. Please let us know if you are interested in joining the committee – we always welcome new expertise and enthusiasm!

Our current committee consists of:

Coordinates committee activities,  main point of contact for staff, parents and relevant, authorities; public face of committee if necessary, chair all committee meetings and ensure that these meetings run effectively, responsible for staff line management and recruitment of staff (some of which may be delegated).

Ensure Safeguarding policy is up to date, ensure staff training on safeguarding is up to date. Ensure Health and Safety policy is up to date, including process for undertaking Risk Assessments, maintain first aid box.
