Governors

12 Maintained Birmingham Nursery Schools made the decision to join together to form a Federation. All these schools have shared vision to achieve a single sustainable organisation, city wide, with strategic governance and leadership delivering an inclusive and safe child led learning experience, strong family partnerships and outstanding outcomes for children. 

 

Federation will bring a better opportunity to secure strong, strategic leadership. Bringing all schools under one leadership structure to ensure that the best practice from each school can be applied to all.  There is now a growing body of evidence nationally that Federations are successful and have led to improved outcomes for children and better professional opportunities for staff.  

There will now be a single Governing Board (GB) covering all schools, supported by local sub-committees.

     

The governing board,  with the headteachers,  have overall responsibility for the running of the schools. this includes

  • Ensuring clarity of vision
  • Holding the headteachers to account for the educational performance of the schools, their pupils and the performance of staff and
  • overseeing the financial performance of the schools making sure their money is well spent
