GOVERNORS AT WROXHAM
Our Local Governing Board support the school moving forward
Chair of Governors
I feel privileged to have been approached by the Trust to serve as a governor at The Wroxham School. With a background in primary education, I have always admired the approach the school has to learning, and I am excited to be a part of the governing team.
I have worked as a Primary School teacher for 15 years, predominantly in KS1, and have always been passionate about the teaching & learning process. I believe it is essential to provide children with a sense of purpose and to encourage everyone to achieve their potential, whilst also making learning fun and relevant.
I have worn many hats over the course of my career, covering leadership positions in ICT, English, and Key Stage 1 and therefore believe I have a lot to bring to the role of governor. I am looking forward to working alongside this great team to help ensure they are getting it right for the children of The Wroxham.
I currently work as Head of Strategy Engagement at University College London (UCL). I am responsible for monitoring and reporting on the progress of our Education Strategy, as well as assisting in the development of new strategies. I design and lead projects that enhance our students’ experience of their education, with a particular focus on assessment and feedback.
I have worked in higher education for more than 16 years in a variety of roles: administration, management, and teaching. I have worked in three different countries and am acutely aware of the pressures faced by all forms of education in a global economy.
I applied to be a governor because I am believe strongly that a child’s education is a collaborative effort between teachers and parents. I am grateful for the responsibility I have been given and look forward to representing the views and concerns of the Wroxham School parent community.
I am Headteacher at The Wroxham School and feel exceptionally proud to work so closely with our school community. I have worked in a number of schools, however, this is my second time at Wroxham, having been Deputy here between 2008-2012.
Our Local Governing Body has many new members, but it is already apparent that they are well placed to challenge and support the school moving forward.
I currently work for the legal publishing division of a FTSE 100 global provider of information-based analytics, overseeing the strategic development of a product specialising in public company transactions and corporate governance. My corporate perspective gives me a fresh take on the challenges faced by the education sector.
I am passionate about fostering enthusiasm and enjoyment for education from a young age, and currently sit on the governing body of two primary schools in Hertfordshire. I am delighted to have an opportunity to contribute to the development of Wroxham as a parent governor.
I currently work at Walker Primary School, in Southgate as a Year
One Teacher. I have been teaching for 9 years and have been at Walker for nearly 6 years. I lead PSHE and our Rights Respecting School, helping children to understand about the rights of a child.
We work very closely with Unicef and for the last 2 years we have been very fortunate to have made amazing links with a school in Ghana, who have become our twin school. We do lots of work together and make regular communications with the children through Skype and letters.
I moved to Potters Bar 2 years ago with my husband and 4 children and we love the community feel that Potters Bar has to offer. I am delighted to be part of Wroxham and hope to share some o the amazing work that we do at Walker and work together. Providing children with a fun, engaging and rich curriculum in School to create awe and wonder is paramount. I hope that by having a link with Walker and Wroxham we will be able to share all our good learning and experiences to create the best schools for our children, the future generation.
As a Co-opted Governor, and member of the premises committee, I have served on the Board of Governors since early 2019. My professional knowledge, as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, lends itself to this role and my experience, as a Director and team leader in a commercial environment, offers an alternative perspective to school life and operations.
I am also a parent at The Wroxham School and have a keen interest in the delivery of excellent education to all the children, in a happy and safe environment. Having joined the Board of Governors at an exciting time for the school, as it was welcomed by the Ivy Learning Trust, I will continue to serve as a Governor on the Local Governing Board to ensure that the highest standards are upheld and delivered.
I began my association with Wroxham as a parent when the first of my two children joined the nursery in 2009. I began to involve myself with the Friends Association soon after, becoming deputy chair between 2012-2016.
In 2014 I joined the school as a member of staff, and am currently the Co-ordinator of the Teaching School, which offers those working in education continued professional development.
My children's journey here was one where learning was fun and exciting and I witnessed first-hand the incredible effect this environment had on them and their development. They continue to demonstrate a passion for learning which began and was fostered here.
I have always been very grateful to Wroxham as an institution, but from the start, also felt part of a community. One that provided a wonderful environment for children to grow and learn and ultimately thrive.
I am very honoured to have been given the opportunity to now continue my journey as a member of the governing body and will do all that I can to help our school maintain and improve the high standards it has set.
Vice Chair of Governors
I am a secondary teacher and leader, a proud Wroxham parent, and a trust-appointed governor.
I have been a secondary English teacher in a variety of schools for eleven years, and am currently an Assistant Head at Habs Boys School. Serving as a governor of a large comprehensive school for four years earlier in my career has given me valuable experience in working as part of a school governing body.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to work for the good of our school and community at this exciting time, and I look forward to contributing to the development of Wroxham as part of the Ivy Learning Trust.
