St Saviour's Governors
I moved to Larkhall with my husband in 2013 and have 2 children, with the eldest attending St Saviour’s Infants School.
I work in the NHS as a Public Health Consultant and have a special interest in improving the health and well-being of children and young people and reducing inequalities. I have a range of skills and experience including data analysis, evidence synthesis and evaluation that are relevant to contributing to the governing body and enhancing school effectiveness. I became a governor because I wanted to contribute to ensuring all the pupils attending St Saviour’s are supported to get the best start in life.
I have lived in Larkhall since my family & I moved to the city 7 years ago. My son has moved through the Infant school and onto the Juniors, and I became a (MAT appointed) Governor in February 2019 in part to ensure that others have the same positive experiences we have had of the St Saviours school community. I am an Architect by profession and so have experience in project management and community engagement, and over & above my normal duties I am joint lead Governor for Health & Safety.
I have been a Governor at St Saviour's Schools since February 2020. My eldest child has recently left the school, my youngest is in Reception and my middle child is at the Juniors.
Amy and I became the Co-Chair Governors of the two schools in the Summer Term of 2021. We are really enjoying the challenge and rewards of this role.
I was an Assistant Headteacher in a school in Wiltshire for 12 years. I left in 2019 to pursue other career opportunities. I now work for Teach First as a Development Lead; delivering the Early Careers Framework to Facilitators. In addition to this, I also teach part-time in a school in Bath.
Within my Governor role, I am able to utilise my skills and expertise within education and leadership; supporting the school to continue to thrive, adapt and respond to the changes and challenges that they face within Education.
I work as a nursery manager in Bath and I live in Larkhall. I have children in both the Infant and Junior Schools. I have been a governor since November 2016. I enjoy all aspects of being a foundation governor especially the amount of time I get to spend in school. I am chair of the Ethos Committee.
I’m a children’s book illustrator and have two children at St Saviour’s (one in the Infants and one in the Juniors). I’m French native speaker and have been living in UK for the last 17 years and in Bath since 2018.
I’m part of the Ethos Committee and work also on languages curriculum of school.
As a bilingual French-Caribbean woman, I'm familiar with the challenges around diversity, equality and inclusivity - I aim to share my skills and experience to make a positive difference to the whole school community.
I am a Mat appointed governor, with two children currently at the Junior's school. Both my older children also attended the St Saviours' Schools. In my professional life I am an Investment Manager for an infrastructure fund and I have previously worked within the construction and facilities management industries.
As a member of the governing body since January 2018, I am chair of the Resources committee and a lead governor for health and safety.
I lead a team at the Government funded Medical Research Council and oversee the process of deciding which of the most promising research ideas from researchers and doctors get funded. My job has given me lots of experience of asking challenging questions and analysing data which is relevant to my role as a Governor. I live in Larkhall and have a child in the Infant school. I was appointed by the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust to the Governing body in November 2018. I am the lead Governor for SEND.
I am a primary school teacher, having been in education for over 20 years across different educational organisations both in the UK and in the US. I am a former deputy head of a large primary school in London, have NPQH and was a coach to other leaders within the borough of Ealing. I very much enjoyed working alongside others, focusing particularly on coaching and mentoring. I have a passion for IT, and led a strategy across Ealing and across London for the implementation of virtual learning. As a mum to 4 children, I hope to be able to bring my experience of motherhood and teaching to the St Saviours Governing Body, aiming to support the schools in whatever way I can. My husband is the vicar at Saint Saviours Church, and so I will bring my Christianity to work alongside the school in fulfilling its Christian ethos and aims.
Staff Governor St Saviour's Schools
I am a Class Teacher at St Saviour's Juniors, I currently work with Year 5. I am also coordinator of Languages and Collective Worship and RE at the Juniors. I was appointed by the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust to the Governing body in October 2016. I sit on the Ethos Committee. I joined the LGB to help support from not just a teaching point of view, but from the organisational side as well and to help continue the journey the two schools are on together.
Parent Governor St Saviour's Junior School
I have two children at the Junior school who both went to the Infant school. I am happy to have chosen these schools for my children and to have become part of the St Saviour's community. I value this opportunity to become more involved as a governor. I know the schools well as a parent and through having worked as a clerk to governors for both schools. Understanding the role the governors have, I wanted to become a governor to utilise my knowledge and experience to support the schools.
In my current employment I have maintained my interest in education by working for Jisc, a not for profit organisation supporting the improvement of higher and further education by providing digital solutions. I am also a non-practising solicitor, having qualified and previously practiced, which has helped me develop relevant skills such as looking objectively and a careful, methodical approach.
Parent Governor St Saviour's Infant School
I have a child at the Infants school and have always been interested in the idea of contributing my skills and knowledge to help the schools that my children attend. This is primarily because I have experienced first-hand the transformational change that the right teachers, mentors and environments can help to bring about. Professionally I’m a business consultant specialising in leadership, strategy and cultural change. I hope to contribute my experience, energy and creative approach in order to be of service to the school.
We moved to Larkhall last year from Brooklyn and our eldest daughter is loving her time at St Saviours already. Our 3 year old daughter will also start in the infants school in the coming year.
My professional background is as a management and technology consultant in strategic change. I worked for 10 years in financial services before leaving to build and run an education business aimed at helping students to start and succeed in their careers.
I look forward to using my experience to add value for the school, but as a foundation governor I’m also excited to play an active role on the Ethos and Resources Committee.
