I am a Link Govenor for year 2 and Link Governor for Rights Respecting schools. The Governing Body is there to ensure that there are good systems in place for the effective running of the school. The Governing Body makes collective decision about the long term direction of the school and holds the school to account. My visits this year to the school have informed me about how writing is being taught in year 2.
Being a governor, is not just about looking to see how school policies are being implemented, it is also about offering ideas and support. Eg I made the suggestion to celebrate Peace One Day www.peaceoneday.org and recommended that we ask the singer Dawud Wharnsby to help us write our Rights Respecting Song. Both of these ideas have been followed through.
I am a qualified primary school teacher and I also have three children at Highlands. I became a Governor as I felt that I could use my knowledge of primary education to help our school so that all children have the best opportunities to learn.
