I have been a Foundation Governor since I became vicar of Buckden in 2007. In 2008 I also became a parent of the school, so my involvement is broad. I am around the school a lot, not just in the playground, but also through leading Collective Worship every week and some involvement with RE, and through visits by classes, key stage groups and the whole school visits to St Mary’s for visits and regular church services.
As a link governor I am involved in the monitoring and evaluation of RE, Collective Worship, and the distinctive ethos of the school in terms of its Church of England Voluntary Controlled status. In addition, I am the link governor for the Foundation Stage (Reception). I also have a particular interest in music (my first degree was in music).
I chair the Every Child Matters committee, and also serve on the Communications Committee, with a special interest in web-based communication and social media.
