Why I became a governor: My initial reasons to become a governor were to understand what was going on at the school during a period of continued disruption and uncertainty.

I was also keen to raise levels of integrity and transparency amongst the governors, improving communication and building a strong relationship between governors, parents, teachers, PTFA and not forgetting the most important element of any school - the children.
