My association with River View Primary and Nursery School has been long and happy spanning over ten years both as a parent and as a Governor. I was appointed as a Chair of Governors in 2014, My experience throughout this time has been extremely rewarding and has enabled me to talk regularly with children, staff and parents to understand how together we can raise standards and enhance and improve school life. My duties involve supporting the Head teacher and senior teachers across many aspects of school business and enable me to be regularly involved in monitoring children’s progress and achievement at the school.

My motive for becoming a school governor was to give something back to both the school and the community. I believe that children deserve the best that we as adults can give them.  They are our future, and a great way to do this is by giving them the best education that we can to give them the all round skills and knowledge to help them fulfil their full potential.
