The Nursery at the heart of the community. Grace Owen Nursery School has been an integral part of Park Hill since 1963. Families have been bringing their children here for over three generations.
In January 2016 we moved into our new, exciting and vibrant building. We hope you and your children will feel welcomed, included and happy here. Come and join us to meet new friends, play and learn together.
Our Meeting Structure
The Full Governing Body of Grace Owen Nursery School meets once every school term. In addition there are three committees,the Vision,Ethos and Strategic Direction Committee,the Education Performance and Performance Management Committee and the Finance Committee. Each committee meets once a term in advance of the Full Governing Body meeting and feeds back relevant changes and developments to the Full Governing Body.
All governors have declared they do not have any financial interests in connection with the school. They are also asked to declare any pecuniary interests before each meeting.
