Chair of Governors Child Protection Resources Sub Committee

 

11th December 2017

 

I joined the governing body as a Parent Governor in 2013 so that I could use my experience to help the school to be the best it possibly can be for the children. As a lawyer I sit on many professional committees and am experienced in reviewing very detailed policies and proposals, which at Abbotts Ann School are always tied back to our objective of ensuring the school is an ambitious, stimulating, fun and safe learning environment for all of our children.
 
I have sat on both the School Improvement and Resources sub-committees and have particular responsibility for safeguarding. I was delighted to be elected as the Chair of Governors in 2015. Leading such a strong team of school governors is a real privilege and we are all very excited about continuing to maintain and build upon our high standards, and also nurturing the rather special community ethos that is, in my view, a cornerstone of our small school.

School Improvement

 

13th November 2019

 

I became a Governor in the hope that my experience in training and education would be of some benefit to the school and its pupils.

 

I have lived in Abbotts Ann for over 40 years and worked at the local college, Cricklade, since 1976. I have also been a Magistrate for the Wiltshire Commission since 1997 and have enjoyed the variety of work which I see every day.

 

I am sure that this new venture for me in supporting the school and its pupils will be of mutual benefit to all who wish the school continued success.
