Richard Atkins Primary School
I have been a Civil Servant for over 20 years, but only become a governor 2 years ago due to my son starting at the school and wanting to support the school, the community and him. I am now the chair and thus am learning as I go!
My ethos is a school is a community assets and there to support children to achieve their potential, gain confidence and be the best they can.
I enjoy stakeholder engagement and many of my roles have involved working a broad range of partners with different objectives and I enjoy finding common ground to created good outcomes for both organisations. I have experience of inclusion and fairness for all and have worked as an Anti Bully Harassment and Discrimination trainer to raise awareness of the issues. As a policy and strategy officer I developed good drafting skills and an insight into bigger picture solutions.
