A note from the Chair of the Local Governing Body (LGB):

All of my career has been in Education, I have worked with a large number of school communities, parents and governors to help in the development and improvement of education provision.  Having retired from work I continue to use my skills and experience to support schools.

I believe that developing an enquiring mind and love of learning helps any child better understand the world and how to make good choices in life.  A high quality education and the opportunities that offers should be available to any child and this is something I will always strive for in my work as a governor.
