Our Governing Board

The Federation of Kenilworth Nursery School and Whitnash Nursery School Governing Board is made up of parents, staff, community and local authority representatives, from a variety of backgrounds, all with a mutual commitment to education. Governing is a voluntary activity but one which carries responsibilities for monitoring the school, its curriculum and budget, and wider areas of work.

Governors offer support and individual expertise to the Head, staff and parents, whilst aiming to ensure the effective management of the school and it’s stands, taking an overall objective view and promoting its interests.

If you are interested please speak to Rachel Gillett, Excecutive Head Teacher.
