As a qualified Kay Stage 1 and 2 teacher with 5 years KS1 teaching experience I have a great understanding of the teacher/teaching perspective.  I have also been a governor at my child’s school for 4 years and prior to training as a teacher, I worked in social research.  I feel that the combination of experience and knowledge that I have brings essential support and skills to the governing body.

I have worked in Marketing for the last 20 years in various industries and I can bring a wealth of marketing experience to the Governing Body.  I also have an experience and skills in creating and maintaining websites, web based forums and other social media platforms

I am always 100% committed to the roles I take on and understand the importance of confidentiality. I look forward to my role on the Governing body and improving the lives of the children who attend the school.

Andrew Passingham (Parent)

As a parent with two children at the school I am ever more interested in the welfare and education that the school provides.  I play an active role in the education of my children, I enjoy helping with homework, which comes with great satisfaction and frustration in equal measures!  I also take time off work to attend school events wherever possible, and I understand the importance of education in the early years of a child’s development.

I have been a police officer for 17 years and currently work in a centrally based unit responsible for improving safeguarding measures for children across London, particularly those reported missing and I am one of three subject matter experts in the subject of missing people for the Met police.
