Hi, my name is Michelle Roberts and I am currently the Vice Chair of Governors, supporting Mervyn George.
I became involved in the Governing Body in May 2017 as I have 2 children at Cadbury Heath. I’m a Project Manager at Lloyds Banking Group, which has linked up with the charity Governors for Schools to help provide business experience to support schools. I have experience in leading teams, managing change, budgets, ensuring regulatory compliance and managing risks and issues. I wanted to use my working experience to help bring a business focus to support the school, manage the limited resources available to benefit the school and pupils, ensuring their wellbeing and to help all meet their potential.
I am a member of the Leadership, Management & Effectiveness Sub-Committee, focused on the strategic management/leadership of the school, as well as budgets and health and safety. I am also a link governor for EYFS. This involves meeting the EYFS lead on a regular basis to provide strategic oversight and to monitor the performance towards child attainment and progress targets.
