Governance

Dear Parent and Carers,


A very warm welcome from the Governing Board of Queens Park Early Years Federation. I am very proud to be Chair of Governors at Queens Park Early Years Federation. As a Governing Board we are very proud of Federation’s schools and the children’s centre within the community. We are committed to fulfilling our duties and in supporting the Executive Headteacher, Ben and his senior leadership team to deliver the Federation’s vision for children and parents with staff as the youngest children deserve the very best Early Years education.


We all work together with a common aim; to provide safe, vibrant and engaging learning environments. We encourage all children through play to learn and develop social interaction skills so they reach their full potential. We achieve this by providing enjoyable learning experiences at each setting across the Federation.


Our caring and nurturing ethos is based on our distinctive values and a belief that our offer to the local community provides young children and parents the best opportunities in order to flourish. Our excellent team of staff and teachers are committed to every child’s success; they instil a love for learning, self-confidence, independence and respect for others and the environment.


As parents and carers, you are very much part of the whole school community and our journey. Your opinions and comments are very valuable to us. We are a federation where children and adults learn from each other, where childhood achievements, free play and open-ended learning are honoured and celebrated.


I look forward to meeting or speaking with some of you soon.


With kind regards,


Carol Foyle
