Message from the Chair of Governors

The Governing Body is responsible for the conduct and effective management of the school, acting within the framework set out by the Government Legislation and by the policies of the Local Authority.

Battledown Centre for Children & Families is at the forefront of developments in early years provision in teaching and learning and outreach expertise showing other mainstream Centres and specialist based provision the way forward.

I see the Governing Body as very much a supporting and focussed group of professional and caring volunteers who are committed to the young children and families that attend Battledown Centre. We are also committed to the Headteacher and Teachers and Staff working with us to provide a caring and happy environment for every child attending the Centre and every adult working with us.

If any Parent or member of staff wishes to contact us please leave a message with the School reception.

Minutes of meetings are available to view as public record, please contact the school office to make a request.  Thank you

Governing Body

Governors are responsible for ensuring the National Curriculum is taught in accordance with current legislation. They are responsible for the recruitment of staff, for the use of the building, and for prudent financial management of the school.

Governors meetings are held twice each term and a number of committees meet in between to deal with specific issues of school life.
