What is the most important thing you do as a governor in school?

Ensure pupils feel happy and safe in school to enable them to achieve.

What is the one thing you would like to improve in education?

Over the last 10 years there has been almost continuous changes to the education system; the introduction of academies, changes to the curriculum, most recently radical review of GCSEs. I think that a period of stability and cohesion is required, in order to allow schools to work with pupils and families collaboratively and focus on learning.

How important is the role of Governor at Trinity?

I think the role of Governor is very important – we have a strategic overview of the school which enables us to see what is going well and what requires improvement. Our role is to scrutinise and challenge to make sure our pupils get the best possible education to ensure they succeed in life.
