I am currently the Vice-Chair of the Academy Board, and Chair of the Resources Committee and have over the last 17 years been active as a Governor in both the Primary and Secondary phase, include three terms of office as a Chair of Governors. Currently I also Chair the Governing Body for Faringdon Community College and to ensure I have as wide an understanding of governance and the issues that a school might face I have always take an active role in the wider governance arena.
Over the years I have chaired statutory Education and Children Services Committees such as – School Organisation and Children’s Trust Board, Independent Exclusion Review Panels and been a member of the Local Safeguarding Board. At a governance level I have most often been involved in the finance and staffing area which has meant that I have been able to use the experiences I gained during my working life initial in HR within the Health Service and then within the regulatory area of The Law Society.
I am one of the original members of the Academy Board which was formed on the 1st of April 2012 and will complete my four year term on the 31st March 2016.
