Hedge End Village Hall Pre-school is a registered charity run by a management committee of volunteers
The management committee is voted in each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and must have at least five members, with three of those members taking the officer roles of Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. You are entitled to, and very much encouraged to, attend and vote at the AGM if you have a child at the pre-school.
What does the management committee do?
We manage the pre-school. We define the policies and procedures the pre-school follows. We are answerable to Ofsted and ensure compliance with all Ofsted guidance. We are responsible for hiring and appraising staff. We manage the budget. We are not involved in the general day to day running of the pre-school, which is the responsibility of Louisa and her team.
How does the management committee run?
We have a constitution, which is a set of rules we follow. We are members of the Pre-school Learning Alliance who provide guidance.
Who can join the management committee?
People with an interest in the pre-school – such as a parent, guardian, grandparent.
How much time is required?
We hold a management committee meeting every month, which we like as many members as possible to attend. We are flexible on times and dates to allow for the best attendance.
