The Federated Governing Body of Church Hill Nursery School and Low Hall Nursery School is composed of:

1 Local Authority governor, 1 staff governor, 4 parent governors (2 from each setting), 8 co-opted governors, the Head teacher and from time to time, associate governors

Governing body meetings are held once a term to discuss issues affecting the strategic management of the nurseries, staffing, the Children’s Centres, budget, building maintenance, extended services and curriculum development. Interested parents can attend as observers.

There are three sub-committees: Finance, Pay and Personnel, Children's Learning and Development, and Premises. There is also a Children’s Centre Advisory Board.

Governors work in close collaboration with the staff and parents to ensure high-quality education and care in a welcoming environment. To do this the Governing Body sets aims and objectives which are addressed in annual School Development Plans for the two settings, and formulates relevant policies to ensure statutory requirements are met as well.

Governors agree the annual School Development Plans at a joint Staff and Governor meeting each September.

Governors monitor policies and activities by making regular visits to the nurseries and meeting staff.
