More information about Beccy coming soon.
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.”
I am a recent addition as an Academy Advisor, joining the team in January 2018 and having a particular focus, with Mr Cunningham, on Maths at The Mead. As the Head of Economics and Business, and of Academic Enrichment and Research, at Cheltenham College, I hope to use my experience of learning at secondary school to contribute to The Mead.
Having been a member of The Mead team previously, I am privileged to rejoin as an Academy Advisor, with a special focus on Early Years.
The Mead School is exceptional in its relentless focus on the experience of each child and the values and principles underpinning this commitment continue to guide the school. I aim to contribute wholeheartedly in terms of ongoing development and believe that my current post, as Course Leader and Senior lecturer for Early Years and English at the University of Gloucestershire, equips me well for the role.
In addition, I bring broad ranging experience in schools over many years, as a primary and early years teacher, deputy headteacher, associate headteacher and advisory teacher, working in both UK and overseas contexts.
Community Academy Advisor
I have been a Governor at The Mead since 2007. I have responsibility for Special Educational Needs and Child Protection and work closely with Mrs Jamieson to support the school in these areas. I have 2 children who both started in reception and are now at secondary school, so I feel I have been through a lot of change with the school. I enjoy being a Governor as I feel I can give something back to the school which is giving my children so much.
Parent Academy Advisor
I have two boys studying at The Mead and have chosen to be a governor to become more involved and learn more about their education. I am a secondary school Science teacher in addition to being a Head of House. I hope that the skills and knowledge I have at work will help me as a governor at The Mead.
The Mead Governance Meeting Attendance will be available soon.
