A word from our Chair of Governors:

Robert-BirdHello, I’m Bob Bird, Chairperson of the Governing Body of Rawmarsh Children’s Centre. It gives me great pleasure to take this opportunity to explain more about the Governing Body of our Centre.

The main role of the Governing Body is to maintain and improve standards of the Children’s Centre. The Governing Body is made up of representatives of Staff, Parents and the Community as well as having some member appointed by the Local Education Authority (LEA). They are all volunteers who give up their free time to ensure that the Centre is managed effectively and to the benefit of children.

The Governors collectively have various legal responsibilities and duties as set out by Central Government and the Local Education Authority. They are responsible for the effective management of the Centre, for the Centre budget, and for Health and Safety. They help to set and monitor the Centre’s philosophy and policies.

Governors do not make detailed day to day decisions about the running of the Centre. This is the role of the Head of Centre supported by the staff.

All Governors give up their time voluntarily and whilst it can be a commitment with a lot of time and effort involved, it’s also very rewarding especially with a Centre like ours. You can either be elected as a Parent Governor appointed by the LEA (details of the next elections are available from the Head of Centre), or be co-opted by the Governors. If you are interested in being considered for a Governor position please contact the Head of Centre or the Chair of Governors via the Children’s Centre.
