Meet our Governors
Julie Cliff – Chair of Governors/SEND Governor/Co-opted Governor
I have been a governor at Cambridge Nursery School for over 20 years and I have overseen many changes including the planning and development of the Children’s Centre and the current building. I am a mum of three children all of whom have attended the nursery. My eldest daughter has cerebral palsy and it was very important that her time at nursery was happy so there was no other choice it had to be Cambridge Nursery. I currently work as a maths teacher in a secondary school so have extensive knowledge of the two ends of the school spectrum.
Kim Brennan – Vice Chair/Parent Governor
Jonathan Grimley – Staff Governor
My name is Jonathan Grimley and I am a teacher at Cambridge Nursery School. I am the staff governor on the governing body. I became a member of the governors in order to share classroom experience with other members of the governing body. I wanted to help make decisions that will benefit all of those who come I into the nursery, this includes children, families, staff and visitors.
Cathy Taylor – Safeguarding Governor/Wellbeing Governor
My name is Cathy Taylor and I am community, safeguarding and well-being Governor. I became a Governor when working as Centre Manager of Cambridge Children’s Centre and when that role ceased I felt that I wanted to carry on supporting the children and families who attend the nursery. I currently work for a domestic abuse charity supporting children and young people and work for a local youth club.
