As a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, the Trustees have the responsibility of ensuring that ESPS operates correctly according to Charity Commission regulations. They manage the business and financial aspects of ESPS, and deal with future planning and strategic direction of the Pre-School. They are also the employer of the Pre-School staff so have responsibilities such as recruitment, staff training and development, paying salaries and managing contracts of employment.
The Trustees of ESPS are the Pre-School Manager, a Chairperson, a Secretary and a Treasurer. The Chairperson’s role is to chair meetings and head any decision-making and provide direction so the Trustees can deliver the aims of the ESPS business. The Secretary’s role is to produce agendas and record minutes of meetings, and to ensure all paperwork for the groups and their members is filed securely. The Treasurer’s role is to manage all financial aspects of the ESPS business, ensuring that the Pre-School runs without loss and that any profit is spent wisely on the children’s education. They also deal with staff finance matters such as salary and pensions.
Being an ESPS Trustee requires commitment and involvement. The reward is to become an instrumental part of the Pre-Schools’ future, ensuring the children have the best possible setting to provide active, educational and fun learning. Operating an Outstanding Ofsted rated provision requires dedication to the children’s learning, and you can help support us to provide this.
