Governors Information


 Federation of 12 Birmingham Nursery Schools

We are in a federation with 11 other nursery schools in the city.

What does this mean?

Our 12 schools have worked together for many years to provide quality education and early childhood services. Our schools will continue to run locally as they do now, but we  have one executive Governing Body with local committees for each school. Our aim is to work even more closely together to continue to provide excellent nursery education and services.

Governors Information

The task of the governing body is to govern the school, focusing on the core functions of providing strategic leadership, holding the headteacher to account and making sure the school’s money is well spent.


Experience has shown that all governors need a strong commitment to the role and to improving outcomes for children, the inquisitiveness to question and analyse, and the willingness to learn. They need good inter-personal skills, appropriate levels of literacy in English (unless a governing body is prepared to make special arrangements), and sufficient numeracy skills to understand basic data. For further information,


It is the role of the governing body to set the school’s strategic framework and to ensure all statutory duties are met. The Governing Body works in partnership with the school.

 The head teacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing board.


The role of the governing board is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
