The school has a Governing body made up of  key stake holders including parents, staff, community and Local Authority representatives. The Governing Body has a legal responsibility for the Newtown Nursery School. The Governors work with the Headteacher to set the vision and strategic aims and to monitor and evaluate performance.

The Parent Governors are parents of the children attending the School at the time of appointment. They are chosen by the majority of votes made by parents. All parents of children in school are eligible as Parent Governors. There are three Governors Meetings annually, one each School term, which are held in School. There are also additional committee meetings each term.

Staff Governors are elected by staff, Local Authority Representative are elected by Lancashire County Council and Co-Opted Governors are elected by the Governing Body based on their skills and attributes relevant to the School.

If you are interested about finding out more about the Governing Body, please speak to the Headteacher or a member of staff.
