Meet the Governors:
I am in my seventh year at Kempsey as a Governor. I am vice chair of governors and chair of the resources committee where we have review and oversight of the finances of the school, H&S matters and HR matters. I am a class governor and thoroughly enjoy spending time with the class to see how they grow over the year. I thoroughly enjoy being a governor. Coming into school to have that oversight of the day to day activities but standing back to take in the holistic bigger picture, whilst understanding the intricate details of the needs of the school, pupils and staff, holding the school to account, seeing the excellent development and growth of all of our children ( including my own three) and being a critical friend. I am also the SEN link governors and I have a particular interest in this area.
Professionally I am able to support the school with my experience and qualifications in Human Resources, L&D and H&S.
