My name is Julie James and I have been a ‘Co-Opted Governor’ at Cadbury Heath for one year.
My journey as a school governor started 13 years ago when I began working within education in a primary school. I have since moved on to new ventures, working for a local authority, but still within education. After changing jobs, I felt that I would like to support a school within my community as a governor and that is how I became part of your amazing school.
My PWPA & KS2 governor role involves; monitoring, challenging and strategically planning with the governor team, holding the Head Teacher and SLT accountable for the decisions that are made to improve standards and raise the outcomes to support every child in the school. I also get chance to see the amazing work children produce and love to see progress that is made.
Cadbury Heath Primary is a great school, on its own journey, and I hope that I can support the hard working, dedicated team of staff and governors in the best way I possibly can. I am really looking forward to working with this ‘Amazing CHPS Team’ in the future.
