Clowne Infant & Nursery School

‘We take our children on a journey of discovery, giving them aspirations and engaging them in lifelong learning’




The Governing Board reconstituted September 2015.

The post of parent governor is very important, since he or she represents the parents on the governing body.  Any parent of a child attending the school can become a parent governor by being elected to the post.  All parents of children attending the school can vote.  The election takes place every four years or upon the resignation of a parent governor.
