Federation Letter to Parents
20 May 2022
As you will be aware Gill Blowers Nursery School and Pastures Way Nursery School have been in consultation to become a Federation. The consultation period has now finished, and the nurseries have decided to go ahead with the Federation. The nursery schools will maintain their own identities but will belong to The RICCHER Federation of Nursery Schools.
We have decided to use the name Riccher for the federation as the ethos is:
Rich Vocabulary and Communication Skills
Independent and Ready
Curious and Critical Thinkers
Confident and Resilient
Have a love of Stories and Reading
Engage in Boundaries and Routines
You can find more information regarding the ethos on the nursery schools’ webpages.
The new federation governing body has created the opportunity for 4 parent governors, 2 from Gill Blowers and 2 from Pastures Way. Parent governors play a vital role on governing bodies, holding the unique position of having a parental viewpoint of the school. Parent governors would be required to attend around 7 meetings each year and would need to be DBS checked. Meetings are usually in the evening and are a mixture of face-to-face and zoom meetings.
If you are committed to improving outcomes for our children and are interested in becoming a parent governor, please contact reception at either nursery school and the headteacher or myself will get back to you to discuss the position further.
