The Children Centre Advisory board supports the governing body to oversee and support all the activities of the centre and act as a critical friend of the centre.  They work closely with the Strategic Partnership Manager and make decisions collectively as a team. They conduct their business through meetings, using relevant documents and advice from the Strategic Partnership Manager for guidance. The Advisory Board meets quarterly and reports directly to the pupil, parents and and communities governing body committee.

  • Strategic Partnership Manager
  • Parents (elected through the centre Parents forum)
  • Staff including the Strategic Partnership Manager and  Early Years Business Manager
  • Childminder representative
  • Private, voluntary or independent (PVI) childcare provider representative
  • Health Visitors and Child Development Advisors
