We are very lucky at Powerstock to have a dedicated team of experienced and committed governors. We have a mix of foundation, parent and authority members who bring a wealth of experience to provide the support and challenge to our successful school.
Head Teacher Ex-officio
As Headteacher I hold an ex-officio position on the Governance Board and I serve on all the Governing Board Committees, as well as attending Full Governing Board meetings and working parties. I have the responsibility of providing the Governance Board with the school information that they require in order to inform their decision making. I have been a Governor in two different schools including Powerstock as Head Teacher since January 2016. I have fulfilled different roles including Initial Teacher Training as a mentor and lecturer for School Centred IT. I am passionate about securing the best outcomes for all the children in our care. I strive to create an environment in line with our Church School Values and use this as a foundation for everyone to grow and learn.
