Freshford Preschool is a registered charity, run by a voluntary parent committee of trustees. The committee is accountable to Ofsted, the Charity Commission and Bath and North East Somerset Council, which ensures that all statutory obligations are met.
The committee is responsible for HR and appoints the preschool staff team. An annual programme of fundraising events organised by the committee generates capital for new resources and equipment. The full committee meets four times a year, with smaller group meetings taking place as necessary.
Committee members are formally appointed or re-appointed at the AGM at the end of term 1. We are always keen to hear from parents who are interested in joining the committee – no specific skills are necessary!
Caroline Ford is also the lead on HR and Learning and Development
