Piglets Pre-School’s Management Committee
Piglets is managed by a voluntary committee of parents and carers. They are responsible for setting pre-schools policies, employment and management of staff, and fundraising. They meet half-termly, usually on a week-night at the setting. The way the committee is run is governed by the setting’s Constitution, which is available upon request.
Working on the committee provides parents and carers with the opportunity to see what goes on ‘behind the scenes’ of a pre-school. You’ll get a chance to see what is right with the setting, as well as what challenges the setting may be facing. Parental support is vital to the setting’s future. If you, as a Piglet’s parent, think you’d like to be a member of the committee, then please get in touch.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM), was originally held in October of each school year. However, in recent years, it has been held during the summer term. At the AGM, the standing committee is dissolved and a new committee is elected. Parents will be asked about their interest in being part of the committee when they enrol their child.
Parents of children who have moved on to ‘big school’ usually decide to end participation on the committee and must be replaced. If there are are not enough members to be quorate (3 officers and 2 members must be elected), the pre-school will not be allowed to legally operate, so full participation is vital.
