Meet the Governors

Governor Information July 2018

Picture 1 Jamie Dean Stockwell - Chair of Governors

I joined the governing body in 2014. My wife and I moved to Shenley in 2007 and we have a son in year 5.  As Chair, I attend all committee/full governing body meetings. I also visit the school on a regular basis to meet with the Headteacher and receive updates on school progress. I strongly believe that every child deserves the best education possible and it is a privilege for me to be able to offer my support to the school community.

I am Chair of the Resources committee  and Vice-Chair of the Governing Body. I became a Governor in 2013. I have two boys, one in year 1 and the other in year 5. I have lived and worked in Shenley for 27 years at Shenley Park for the Shenley Park Trust. I became Governor with the aim to encourage the school to visit and to value the open space and all that it has to offer.

I was elected as parent governor in 2016.  My wife and I moved to Shenley in 2008 and we have four children. Three of my sons are currently at the school in the nursery and years 3 and 5. Professionally I have worked in the healthcare industry for over 13 years and have held various senior sales and management positions during this time.

I am a member of the Learning and Achievement Committee and support the school as link governor for Maths.

I joined the governing body in January 2016. My wife and I moved to Shenley in 2014 and we have two daughters (aged 2 and 3).  I am an underwriter in mergers and acquisitions at Ironshore International, having previously worked as a corporate solicitor at Nabarro LLP in the city. My job has given me the appropriate skills to allow me to assist the school in whatever way I can. 

I provide an independent, non-parent perspective to the governing body.

I am a member of the 'Learning and Achievement' committee and I am committed to creating a positive learning environment which allows all children to thrive.
