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 have been Head at Shenley now since September 2011. Before a change in career to teaching I was in Retail management. I graduated from Plymouth University in 1994 and over my career to date I have taught in all year groups from reception to year 7. I have worked as a Deputy headteacher in three different schools as well as working as a class teacher in North Carolina USA. I am passionate about creating irresistible education through creative teaching practices and outdoor learning. I am proud that I foster an inclusive school with tolerance, pride and supporting each other are at the heart of what we do.
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 have lived in Shenley for 5 years since moving from North London. I have two children who attend Shenley Primary School. My professional life has been spent working in Education, for National Charities and in Local Authorities throughout London. I am a Qualified Social Worker and currently work in Hertfordshire. I am a Co-opted Governor and responsible for Safeguarding/Child Protection.
I joined the governing group as a parent governor in December 2017 and I have two children who attend Shenley Primary School. My professional life has been spent working in the third sector in humanitarian response. I am currently vice chair of the Learning and Achievements committee and I am excited about the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the education of all the children at our school.
My wife and I have lived in Shenley for the past five years. We have three children and seven grandchildren. I have served as a Governor previously when our children were young.
I am a retired company director and strongly believe in local schooling for all children. I hope that my experience will add to the Governing Body.
