Urszula Tompsett - Chair to the Trustees

Urszula initially came to us as a Parent Trustee in 2013. She has shown her steadfast support for the nursery in many ways - participating in nursery charity fundraising activities, building closer links between the local Polish community and liasing between the school PFTA and the nursery to ensure the nursery can participate in school events, such as school's annual summer and Christmas fayres. Urszula is available to interpret information for our Polish and Russian speaking EAL. Urszula stepped up into the role of the Chair in the Summer 2018 when our long standing previous Chair stepped down from her role as Trustee, having giving 15 years to the board.

Julie Simmonds - Trustee

Julie joined as a Parent Trustee in 2012. Julie has been key to the partnership the nursery, including the Trustees, have with their parents. Julie provides a real nursery 'families' presence at formal Trustee meetings, acting as the parent voice. Julie was instrumental in gathering parent feedback when the nursery explored parent need for earlier opening hours, resulting in the launch of the additional service, the St Thomas a Becket Nursery Early Bird Club.

Mary Burbage - Secretary to the Trustees

Mary joined the Trustee Board in 2018. Although fairly new to the role of Nursery Trustee, the nursery is not an unfamiliar place for Mary. She is a well known face to the nursery trustees, staff and families, through her many years service as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant at the St Thomas a Becket Primary School. Mary comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience in working with children and families in the education sector. And she always has a cheery smile on her face!
