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 for 18 months. My eldest child has recently left the school, my youngest is in Reception and my middle child is at the Juniors.
Amy and I are the Co-Chair Governors of the two schools and are really enjoying the challenge and rewards of this new role.
I have been an Assistant Head at a school in Wiltshire for 12 years but left the role in 2019 to pursue other career opportunities. I am currently working as a Primary Lead Mentor for Teach First, as well as teaching 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 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 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.
