Our school governors are volunteers who wish to make a positive contribution to our children’s education, and as such, they play a vital role. In partnership with the Senior Leadership Team they help to shape the future direction of the school.
The Governing body of Rolvenden Primary
We have recently created a joint governing body with Tenterden Primary Federation. This is made up of the following members from each school.
1 x Community Governor
1 x Parent Governor
1 x Staff Governor
We have a circle model of governance with all governors taking additional responsibilities to support the school in providing the best education possible.
Our full local governing body meet three times a year with members from Rolvenden and Tenterden to discuss the headteacher’s report which includes performance data. The sub-committees meet three times a year to reflect on visits and school-specific areas of development.
I have been a headteacher for 13 years, having worked in Lewisham, South East London and then in Dartford before moving out of London to beautiful Kent. Prior to becoming a Head I worked in local authority advisory roles and as a teacher, leading on the general school improvement agenda and special educational needs.
Head of School
My dream for children in school is that they are given a first rate academic experience through outstanding teaching; but alongside this I have a proven track record of facilitating both the pupils and their families to experience exciting opportunities outside of the classroom. I look forward to giving your child and your family similar opportunities.
I have lived in Rolvenden for over 20 years and have been involved with Rolvenden Primary School for over ten years, including at time as Chair of Governors. I work at Benenden School, in the Academic Support Department where I am Assistant SENDCo. I am also a governor at a local prep school and so have a range of experience in education.
Outside of my school commitments, I enjoy spending time in Cornwall and travelling as well as reading, gardening, cooking and tennis.
