The Pre-school is a voluntary committee run charity.
Chairperson - Marie Box
Designated Committee Safeguarding Person - Annika Palmer
Marie is a former employee and parent who offered to take over as chair in September 2019 after our long serving chair Yrsa Logan stepped down. I'm delighted that Yrsa has agreed to remain as a trustee. Marie liaises closely with the pre-school manager, meeting weekly, and carrying out the manager’s supervision and appraisal.
The pre-school is run on a daily basis by the manager and supervisor whilst the Pre-school committee oversees the administration and management of the Pre-school. Both parties liaise together regarding salaries, opening hours, term dates, purchase of resources, staff welfare and training needs.
The committee comprises of both present and former parents, local parishioners and staff. They meet together once a term to discuss any items brought to their attention by the pre-school management team, fundraising, review policies and procedures and to be informed of any updates to legislation.
Parents/carers are informed in good time of the date of the meetings.
This year we have raised an amazing £122.80 for Children in Need, thank you to everyone who supported out 'Spotty' week.
Our annual sponsored bounce will take place as usual in June. This is always very well supported and enables us to purchase 'Incredible Eggs' again in the Summer term. This provides a fantastic opportunity to see the eggs in the incubator and actually watch the ducklings hatch.
Any surplus funds raised this year will be spent on our ever developing Forest School area.
