We are pleased to advise that we have successfully recruited candidates  for the upcoming school year (2024-2025). We'll next be looking for new members in May 2025.


Here's the lowdown:

We follow a constitution which states various legalities,  including how our committee should be comprised.


In order for Playgroup to remain running, we must have in place, a Chair, a Secretary, a Treasurer and at least two more general members (and no more than nine general members). 40% of all members must be current parents and no one person may remain on the committee for longer than nine years. 



Our Annual General Meeting AGM:

Our AGM was held in May this year. It has previously always been held in July, however, this has always been an immediate handover. By holding the AGM in May, our resigning members will still remain active until July and we hope to fully support new members to achieve a smooth transition. 


All new members must be elected at the AGM. 



So, what do we do?

As a committee, we all hold relevant DBS certificates and must sign our constitution. We do love to fundraise, however, we are not solely a fundraising team. We are classed as trustees of the charity and work closely with Vicki and the staff to ensure Kings Stanley Playgroup is the best it can possibly be. Please download the below form to find out what our job roles entail - as detailed by PATA, our governing body. 


Of course, we really do like to fundraise as well! As a charity run, community playgroup, we manage to keep our costs low by fundraising. Our sensory garden that is nearing completion has cost approximately £8000 and is the result of many hours of hard work applying for grants and fundraising over the last two years... But wasn't it worth it?! How amazing is it, that all the children, both current and future, get to enjoy and benefit from a wonderful sensory garden and we get to leave that legacy behind?


We are a wonderful and friendly team. We meet when needed, sometimes it's monthly or bi-monthly but we must meet at least three times a year, as per our constitution. We either meet face to face (with snacks) or over Microsoft Teams (also with snacks) in an evening, around 7.30pm/8pm. Lots of us work and have younger children, so we're all really very flexible about timings. Not all committee members need to be present at all meetings, but for a meeting to go ahead, we must have at least two officers (Chair/Secretary/Treasurer) and 50% of all members present. 




We hope we've given you a bit of an insight into what we do here on Kings Stanley Playgroup's Committee. Please do get in contact if you have any questions for us.
