The Federation of Osborne and Featherstone Nursery Schools Governing Board

Osborne and Featherstone Nursery Schools are both local authority maintained schools and they are ultimately accountable to the Governors and the local authority, Birmingham City Council.

The nurseries are governed by a Federated Governing Board which meets six times a year, once every half term.

The Governing Board also has a half day strategic planning / training day each academic year.

If you would like to know more about our school governors, or are interested in joining the governing board, please contact the school office on 0121 675 3408. If you would like to see copies of the non-confidential parts of our governor minutes please ask at the school office.

We currently have one vacancy for a parent governor.

A parent governor must have a child at either Osborne or Featherstone Nursery School.


Governors Equality Statement

As governors we will promote equality of access and opportunity, positive attitudes and good relationships between people with different backgrounds, genders, cultures, faiths, abilities and ethnic origins. Equality runs through everything that happens at our school. As part of this, governors will ensure that all our discussions, initiatives, policies and decisions promote equality of opportunity and oppose all forms of discrimination, including the protected characteristics of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender
  • Race & Nationality
  • Religion or belief
  • Pregnancy
  • Marriage
  • Gender Identity
  • Sexual orientation

Governing Bodies are expected to play three key roles

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
