Ladybird Forest Pre-School provides much valued Early Years care and education to the community of Ampthill, Bedfordshire, and is rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted. We are looking for a Trustee to join our Board of Directors.

The Role:

As a Trustee at Ladybird, you will join the Board of Trustees in ensuring that the charity maintains and develops its services to children, is well run, and meets its legal and financial obligations. With your colleagues on the Board and the Management team, you will help to shape the Pre-School’s strategic direction. You will share our passion for ensuring that Ladybird continues to provide an outstanding level of care and education to young children in our community. 

Your tenure will automatically run until the AGM in June 2021, but you would be invited to nominate yourself for election for the following 12 months.

As well as the AGM, you will also attend half-termly evening meetings with the Management team and termly meetings with the Board, all of which can be held online. You will also provide some ad hoc support and guidance to the Management team as necessary.

Becoming a Trustee at Ladybird Forest Pre-School is a highly rewarding way to support our organisation and the Early Years sector. Please note that Trustee roles are unremunerated voluntary positions, although reasonable expenses will be paid.

Your skills and experience:

If you have knowledge of the Early Years or education sectors, or previous Board experience in a comparable field, we would love to hear from you. 

Ladybird Forest Pre-School is committed to equality of opportunity and supports and encourages under-represented groups and values diversity. We seek people from a wide range of backgrounds, who will bring a fresh perspective to the Board. We are keen for the Board to reflect the diversity of the community we serve and therefore welcome applications from all sections of the community.

Safeguarding Requirement:

Ladybird Forest Pre-School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is a requirement of all staff that they share this commitment and follow the prescribed policy and procedure to continuously promote a culture of safeguarding across the whole organisation.

This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974) and does require an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. Applicants must be prepared to disclose any convictions they may have and any orders which have been made against them.
