Parent Governors serve for a period of two years, while all other governors serve for a four-year period.

Although the Governing Body makes key decisions, like agreeing the school’s budget, appointing staff, the day to day management of the Centre is the responsibility of Carolyn Asante, the Head of Centre.

The Chair of Governors, can be contacted via the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre, Michaelston Road, Ely. CF5 4SX. Telephone 02920 671421.
