Our Governors

The Full Governing Body of Grace Owen Nursery School meets once every school term. In addition there are three committees:

  1. Vision, Ethos and Strategic Direction Committee
  2. Education Performance and Performance Management Committee
  3. Finance Committee

Each committee meets once a term in advance of the Full Governing Body meeting and feeds back relevant changes and developments to the Full Governing Body.

All governors have declared they do not have any financial interests in connection with the school. They are also asked to declare any pecuniary interests before each meeting.
