The Pre-school Committee consists of parents of attending children. It has a responsibility to oversee the operation of Pre-school and to make the short and long term decisions to ensure that it runs safely, efficiently and adapts in order to address parents wishes and concerns. The committee also works on fund raising activities that enable Pre-school to balance the finances each year.
For the committee to operate within Ofsted and charity guidelines, it must have volunteer Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary who all have formal roles and have children at Pre-school. There are also some other permanent members of the committee who, like the Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, follow Ofsted protocols and are DBS and Ofsted checked and approved.
All parents are welcome and encouraged to come along to meetings and give their feedback on Pre-school activities, as well as help out where they can. The meetings are a great source of information and an open forum to raise questions or concerns.
