Why did you choose to become a School Governor?
I volunteered to become a governor because, as a parent I was interested in how the decisions taken by the Board of Governors affected the children’s education. The school is such a great example of how teachers and parents can really secure the best for the children by working together. You see that cohesion and community spirit every time the school hosts an event and through initiatives like this website.
What do you do when not attending Governors Meetings?
When I am not attending governors meetings, I’m either busy, managing the finances for the law courts in the North West or I’m operating Dad’s taxi, bank and DIY service!
