“Governors know the school very well because they are frequent visitors and volunteers.
They talk knowledgeably about its work and understand why it is successful. They
set high expectations for the children, staff and themselves. Governors ensure that
every child has an equal opportunity to be successful. Because they know how well
staff are leading learning and the impact they have on children’s progress, they
are able to set targets for the performance of every individual. Governors have a
good grasp of finance and manage the budget effectively. They undertake regular training
and so have excellent levels of expertise to monitor carefully the work of the nursery.
They are fully involved in self-evaluation and future planning..” Ofsted 2014.
