The Mead Community Primary School is part of The Mead Academy Trust. The responsibility for the strategic management of the school is shared between the Headteacher, The Board of Directors and the Academy Advisors.
The Academy Advisors support The Mead Community Primary School and has a general responsibility for the strategic management of the school. It is not expected to take detailed decisions about the day to day running of the school – that is the function of the Headteacher.

The Mead Governance Meeting Attendance will be available soon.
Chair of Academy Advisory Group
I am a new member of the Academy Advisory Group, joining in July 2021. I work in the NHS as an experienced senior programme manager leading and managing transformation programmes and projects. As a passionate advocate and leader of continuous improvement for myself and for teams I work with. I am looking forward to supporting The Mead as it continues to improve and grow. Having recently moved to Hilperton, I have a son who has just started nursery.
Vice Chair of Academy Advisors
I have two children at The Mead (Wingfield site) and have become a Governor in order to be more involved in school life. I have been working in the arts education sector for 15 years and I am currently Development Manager for Wiltshire Music Connect where I lead on schools and curriculum. The Mead is a very special place where children thrive and I feel lucky to be part of the school community.
Having worked in education for over twenty five years, as an English teacher, SENCO and School Leader, it is a privilege to have the opportunity to be able to bring this experience to governance at The Mead School.
As an Academy Advisor I have the opportunity to be at the heart of the school which contributes greatly to our community, and I believe it is important to have parents’ voices heard and ensure that our children thrive and enjoy their primary school years in a supportive environment. With over 20 years in the Army, including time as an instructor, I hope to bring an alternative view to the development of The Mead providing my experience to the Headteacher and the senior staff.
