Our Chair of Governors
Through our website, we hope to offer you an insight into the challenging and exciting activities which St Mary’s offers to all our children. We hope that it encourages you to experience a personal welcome, first hand, at the school.
I stepped into the role of Chair of Governors in July 2019 after being a member of the Governing Body since 2016, serving as a Diocesan Board of Education nominee. Before that, I was a governor at two other Church of England schools in Nottinghamshire. Before retiring, I was the deputy headteacher of an independent school in the South East and then vice principal of a sixth form college in Nottinghamshire. As Chair, I aim to support and encourage the positive steps being taken by the headteacher and the staff to ensure that every child is able to fulfill their potential in this primary phase.
This is, of course, a joint venture in which we all have a part to play – pupil, parent, teacher, headteacher and governors. Let’s journey on to success!
