Simon has been a parent governor since January 2014. Married to Sally, with two children, he is an active and involved dad. He enjoys a wide range of activities, not least, supporting the children in their latest adventures and endeavours.
Simon grew up in Yorkshire, before moving to the South East after university to work in London. After stints in London, the South East and Devon, the family are now settled in Sevenoaks. Â
He is driven by a desire to help the school provide the best possible outcome for all children, irrespective of background and ability. He has a deep interest in education as well as social care.
A keen cyclist, you may see Simon cycling around Kent and Sussex early on a Sunday morning with his fellow cycling dads or through Knole Park with the children.
Simon is a director for a global communications firm and has over 25 years experience in research, analysis, process improvement, people development Â and marketing.
I have been a parent governor since December 2016, and I have just been re-elected for a further term of 4 years. As a governor I sit on the Learning and Development Committee and I lead on pupil premium and sport funding as of September 2020. Â
I have 2 children who currently attend the school, who have thrived during their time there. They both have a zest for life and learning and I honestly believe this is due to the care and guidance of all those who work at Sevenoaks Primary School. Â
I have 13 years experience in Education, teaching Physical Education at secondary school level. During this time I have focused on pastoral care and the nurturing of children to enable them to have the individual tools they need for learning. I have also taken lead roles in the qualification areas of the subject at GCSE and A Levels. Â
I have been a co-opted governor at the school since the beginning of 2020, although I have previous experience of being a co-opted governor at a primary school in Tonbridge. Whilst there, I was particularly involved with the finances, but learnt a great deal over the years and across all areas. I have a particular interest in education and have previously been involved in mentoring schemes and breakfast clubs in London.
My background is in finance and specifically with charities and sustainability.
I have three young children, attending or about to attend Â SPS.
James joined the SPS Governing Board at the end of 2019 and hopes to make use of his experience of financial, risk and operational management gained through a career in investment banking whilst serving as a governor.
James has been a resident of the Sevenoaks area for the last 20 years and is married with two children who attend other local schools. Having always had an interest in education James is keen to help the school with a desire that all children have the opportunity to achieve their best.
I Â became a parent Â governor since December 2016, the same year that my eldest daughter joined the school. Both my daughters are now pupils at the school. I currently serve as a co-opted governor, I sit on the Learning and Development committee and lead on Safeguarding for the school. Â
I have over twenty years experience in primary teaching, the last fourteen Â of Â Â which have been in senior leadership. My particular areas of interest are in inclusion and Â special educational needs and, for the last ten years, I have led a primary Â Autism Resource Base for Â the London Borough of Camden.
I was elected as a Parent Governor in November 2020. Â As a governor, I sit on the Learning and Development Committee. Â I am passionate about diversity & inclusion.
I am married with 4 children. My second child attends SPS and is thriving. Â
I have a Masters in Operational Research and a BSc in Computer Science. I have over 15 years work experience within Corporate as a Business Analyst. I became an entrepreneur 7 years ago in Women Leadership as a Productivity & Transformational Coach. I am also a qualified Advanced Grief Recovery Specialist where I teach individuals and organisations how to recover from any type of emotional loss. Â
I am excited about the opportunity to utilise my experience to support the school in ensuring accountability for an inclusive environment.
Jo is a Co-opted governor, originally appointed in 2007. Key areas of responsibility: Literacy, website and Phase 2.
