Meet The Governors

What is the role of the Governing Body?

All nursery schools must have a Governing Body. The Headteacher is employed by the Governing Body and is accountable to them. It is the role of the governors to:

  • Develop policies
  • Decide how the budget will be spent
  • Appoint staff
  • Draw up action plans after school inspections
  • Help set aims , objectives and targets for the school
  • Monitor and evaluate progress
  • Challenge and support the school to improve performance
  • Ensure there is an effective complaints procedure in place

Please let us know if you are interested in becoming a Governor. More information about becoming a Governor is on the Haringey website here.

A Message from our Chair of Governors

Together we represent a broad spectrum of occupations and bring invaluable community experience and expertise to the leadership of Pembury House Nursery School & Children’s Centre.

The Governors of Pembury House Nursery School & Children’s Centre are rightly proud of the school and the high quality of education that it offers to the community. Each governor is assigned to a committee and makes visits as part of a monitoring and evaluation process. The School Development Plan is reviewed regularly and targets set to ensure that our priorities are clear.

As Chair of Governors I am very aware that, in order to achieve the highest standards for our pupils, we must always strive for excellence, and by working closely with the school, community and parents we aim to continue our success.
