Meet our Governors

My name is Lucy Skillen and I joined the Governing body of Moss Hall Nursery School as a parent Governor. I have now been elected to serve as the chair of governors and I am on the resources committee. I bring over fifteen years experience of working in Local Authorities.
Both of my children have been fortunate to attend this outstanding maintained nursery school. Being a Governor and contributing to the continued success of the Nursery School and giving back to the community is my thank you to the amazing staff who looked after and nurtured my children.

Yulia Bakman - Parent Governor
My name is Yulia Bakman and I have joined as a Parent Governor on the Resources Committee. I have previously been a Parent Committee member at Essex Park Community Pre-school.

I'd like to contribute to its success and to offer my support during these challenging times for Maintained Nursery Schools.
