Governing council and children's centre governance structures

Schools and preschools

School and preschools are governed by either a governing council or a preschool management committee.

The governing council website has more information on what these councils do and how they work.

Children's centres

Children's centres deliver a range of different services for children and families. These services are provided by various agencies that work in partnership with the centres.

A partnership group brings these agencies together to provide an integrated service. A leadership team takes on shared responsibility for delivering these services in an integrated way.

More information can be found about governance for children’s centres.
