Welcome to Waterthorpe Nursery Infant School
We have several parents who sit on our governing body. They attend termly full governor meetings, sit on committees, attend training and make visits to school. Parent governors have an important role in our school community and they contribute to the plans for the future of the school. Meetings and training are sometimes held during the day, after school or occasionally at weekends. Some employers will give staff leave of absence to fulfil governor duties.
If you are interested in being a parent governor, and feel that you could commit the time tothis role, please write a short letter about yourself containing the following information and we will get in touch with you to arrange a meeting.
- Your name
- Your children’s names and ages
- Your job, skills and interests

- Anything else you want to tell people

Waterthorpe Nursery Infant is part of a complex that houses our Infant Nursery School, a Junior School, a church and community rooms that are accessed by a range of groups (both during the school day and after school). As a school we are committed to working with the community to provide opportunities for all our children.
Parental engagement is always a priority for our school. We firmly believe that the role of parents and families in the education of their children, through broad and engaging extended curriculum, is vital. We strive to work with families to provide opportunities for everyone to be involved in their child’s learning.
Each year we run a range of workshops for parents and families. These include workshops about different curriculum areas, the Foundation Stage and SEAL workshops (Social and Emotional Aspects of learning). Our workshops are run at different times of the day and on different days of the week to help provide opportunities for everyone to attend at least one. Please see our diary for dates of workshops.
Please click here for a link to our curriculum pages where you will find booklets about all our subject areas.. These have been developed to support parents and families. Please also explore our website; it contains lots of information that may help families. If you have any feedback or ideas about how we could improve our website please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
