Manager Of A Music Charity (The OHMI Trust)

Why did you want to become a Governor here at Arthur Terry?
I wanted to become a governor at Arthur Terry so that I could support the work done in this outstanding school by giving my time to look at things with a fresh perspective. Governors have the privilege of being highly involved in the school but with a view from outside of the day to day situation which means that sometimes things are picked up that would be missed by those working in the school. Arthur Terry staff are very open to the input of governors which makes it a very worthwhile role.

What skills and attributes do you have that you bring to your role as Governor?
I have previously been a governor at a primary school so have experience of the situations faced there and how these may impact students entering year 7. I trained professionally as a secondary music teacher so know something of the pressures the teaching staff are under. I also have experience of working with children with special educational needs both as a governor and a family member. I consider myself to be organised, enthusiastic and hard working all of which are vital to keep pace with the governor calendar!

What do you enjoy most about being a Governor?
I enjoy being a small part of a significant team that shape the future of Arthur Terry and ensuring to the best of my capability that the school provide the highest standards and widest range of educational opportunities for each individual student at the school.
