The Governing Body

Governing Body

The Governing Body meet twice a term to discuss issues relevant to the management of the Nursery. Governors are elected to serve for 4 years. Parents can contact Governors via the school office in the first instance. Our Governors are a group of people from different backgrounds with a common desire to take an active role in the life of the Centre. They encourage new ideas, support staff training and act as critical friends. A Governing Body is designed to reflect the community in which the school is situated, many of our Governors live near Bushy Leaze and all have strong links with the Centre for one reason or another.

If you feel like an exciting challenge and, in the process, helping to shape the future of Bushy Leaze why not become a governor!  We currently have vacancies available.  If you wish to find out how interesting and rewarding this role can be, please contact Louisa Lawrence (Clerk) and visit
