New Chair of Governors

 

Our Chair of Governors Mrs Rachel Mackintosh came to the end of her second term of office recently and has now stood down as Chair.  Rachel has been with us through some of the very significant changes that have happened here over the last 8 years… expansion to 630 school, OFSTED inspections, SIAMS inspection, forming and joining Lighthouse Schools Partnership (MAT) and nominations to become a Teaching School and English Hub.  She has led the governors through many challenging decisions and helped the school to become the success it now is across the region.  We are deeply grateful for her work with us.  Rachel will be staying on as an Associate Governor for 6 months to support us with a SIAMS inspection due sometime in the Spring.  

Governors have now elected Ben Hughes as our new Chair.  Ben has been a parent governor for 4 years and has been chair of our Finance Committee.  We are very pleased that he has been willing to stand in this role and look forward to working with him in this new capacity.
