Governor Statement
I’m the mum of three teenagers who all attended Stradbroke Primary School. I became a Local Authority Governor fourteen years ago, shortly after the birth of my twin sons, as education was something I had always been passionately interested in.
I have been a councillor for six years, representing Richmond Ward (which includes Stradbroke). I am keen that all children in my ward get a good education at their local community school, and being a school governor allows me to influence this positively.
Areas of school life that I have taken a particular interest in over the years have been the curriculum, and special educational needs.

Governor Statement
I have had the chance to be a governor at Stradbroke School for the past 12 years. Although it is a responsibility to be a governor it can also be a real pleasure, I have met during my time at the school, some really inspirational teachers and hundreds of brilliant children.
As we don’t get paid, each governor is involved with the school because we care, not only about our own children, but each child who comes through the door every morning. As I have observed the teachers going about their job of teaching your children the same goes for them too, they care deeply for the children in their care and want the best education that can be provided for them. It’s great to watch the children as they progress through Stradbroke, how they change from tiny infants to well rounded people, and the way they treat each other in a kind and thoughtful way. The school tries to instil in each child a good code of conduct to take them through senior school and into later life.
If you think that you have something to offer the school you should consider becoming a governor yourself, you will have to attend some meetings during the school year, but you will find it very rewarding to say the least.

Governor Statement
I am an LEA Governor on Stradbroke Primary’s Board of Governors. I am a solicitor and heard about the opportunity to become a Governor through the solicitors firm I was working at.
I decided to become a Governor in order to become more involved in my local community and was offered the chance to be a Governor at Stradbroke Primary. This worked out really well because I live 5 minutes away from the school. I have now been with Stradbroke for 3 years and am loving every minute of it.

Governor Statement
I decided to become a parent governor 18 months ago when my children started at Stradbroke Primary School in Year 4 and Nursery. As I was new to the school and the area, I felt that this would be a fantastic opportunity to get involved and give something back to the local community.
I wanted to continue to support the excellent work that was already being done by the staff, children and governors at this brilliant school by supporting and playing a part in improving all of our children’s education, as I feel that this is one of the most important roles we have as a parent.
