Governors: Pen Portraits
Chair of Governors
I am the newly appointed Chair of Governors, I have been a parent governor at Rivacre since 2016 and have 2 children at the school. I work in education and have the experience in school governance and the wider school environment. I am looking forward to watching Rivacre expand and grow over the next few years and hope to maintain and promote the school ethos.
I have been a parent governor since June 2016. I have a son, Archie, that attends Rivacre Valley and I have volunteered at the school for the past two and a half/three years. I am currently working in the kitchen as my main job at the moment at other schools and have my NVQ level 2 in child care. I feel thta my experience and involvement through the schools has a good part towrds my Governing role. As Parent Governor I have been assigned to be a parent with a familiar face on the playground. I am caring and passionate towards the school with a familiar friendly face that is approachable at all times.
I was appointed as a co-opted Governor by the Governing Board for a period of 4 years to March 2023. I have particular responsibility for Finance and for Safeguarding of Pupils. I am a member of the Pay Panel. I have been a governor here since 2003 and was Chair of the Governing Body for several years. I thoroughly enjoy working with the school, which is always striving to become even better.
