Governors and Staff


Our Governing Body is made up of the following Governors:

  • Cathy Cox Chair
  • Phil Holford
  • Sarah Kozlowski
  • Carolyn Stevenson
  • Jackie Melksham
  • Hayley Gast
  • Gemma Perkin
  • And the clerk to the Governors is Miss Sara Bartlett

They are a group of volunteers who are responsible for our Nursery School  and who bring great expertise, knowledge and understanding to the role both individually and collectively.

The Governor’s are involved in developing, planning, overseeing and reviewing our services. They make decisions regarding staffing, budgets, policies, procedures and practice.

They show great commitment to Ilminster Avenue and really understand this community. Our Parent Governors in particular know what it is like to be a service user, they are actively involved and are here to represent your views.
