I am the Chair of the Board of Directors and the Chair of The Mead School Governing Body. I have been a Governor since 2003 at The Mead Community Primary School. I became a Governor because I was impressed by the passion and commitment of the staff and I wanted to make a contribution to my children’s school. I love the school and all it stands for and want to make sure The Mead offers the best for all the children it cares for. I take my role as Governor very seriously and work as hard as I can to fulfil this role. I feel proud to be associated with The Mead Academy Trust and I have to admit that what I enjoy the most is spending time with the many different children and seeing them blossom!

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.

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.

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.
