An introduction by our new Chair of Governers, Mr Andrew Wood
Firstly, I would like to thank our out going Chair (incoming Vice Chair), Sarah Porter. She has worked tirelessly in her duties and the school has benefitted from her passion to improve all aspects in leadership, governance, maintenance and most importantly, the quality of education your children receive. I have a hard act to follow, but we have a wonderful team of governors, excellent Headteacher, dedicated staff and your children will be the recipients as we strive to continue improving.
I know I will be a little unknown to many of you, because I was introduced to the role by a teacher a few years ago and asked to be a Foundation governor. I have worked and volunteered in the charity/social enterprise environment for the last 12 years, currently holding positions Deputy Chair at Sheffield Young Carers, Trustee at a digital community mental health charity- Sheffield Flourish, Trustee at Element Society (NCS Provider) and my day job is with the NHS Confederation.
I have been married for 25 years (this year) and have two boys, one in University and the other just about to go, so this year also gives my wife and I the opportunity to move house to the area we spend hours walking around, the beautiful Peak District. I look forward to serve as the Chair of Governors and may God bless us all with our endeavours.
