I have been a governor for as long as I can remember in my career, from about 1996, in several capacities: staff governor (including senior leader), Local Authority governor and a head teacher governor for most of the second half of my career.
I have been in education for almost twenty five years, mostly as a full time teacher and a head teacher for over ten years. I have been in senior leadership for nearly twenty years and a subject coordinator for most of my career
As head teacher governor of Shenington C of E (VA) Primary School, I consider it to be my key role to firstly keep all of our children and school community safe, followed by educating our children to the highest standards, to achieve their full potential in all aspects of life.
Our latest Ofsted inspection in March 2016 praised "the high expectations" in our school and my "aspirational" role. I can only be aspirational with a team who are aspirational themselves and so I praise them for helping me to create the strong Christian and British values, ethos and vision which we nurture within our school.
