I have been a governor since May 2005 and started as a Parent Governor, progressed to a Local Authority Governor and now am a Co-Opted one. I coached a local football team (Ottershaw FC) for 15 years from junior to adult football and for many years refereed football at adult level. I still run fitness boot camps in the village and along with my wife, Marise still coach children in football and fitness. We also run our own Health & Wellbeing business. Outside of sport for many years I have been writing a fiction thriller and hope to finish it in the next 12 months. Being born and brought up in Leeds I am still an avid Leeds Utd supporter and have sadly influenced my 20 year old son Jack to do the same! We also have two daughters, Emily and Maddie and all three of our children attended the schools.

As a busy magazine editor - it's not always easy to help out and be involved with everything that I'd like to be. But, for me - becoming a governor and more recently vice chair of governors is a way that I can try and give that little bit back. I have had two children start their education at the Infant School and am passionate, as is every parent I'm sure, for children to get the best start on their educational journey as possible. To be a part of that journey, involved in helping the school and it's amazing team be the best it can be is not only exciting and rewarding but a privilege too.

I have been a member of the Governing Body since 2010. Within my role as teacher, Deputy and Governor I have been priviledged to get to know many of the children and familes of Ottershaw well. Outside of school my family and I share a passion for the outdoor life. We live on a small holding locally - and have a number of pets including dogs, pygmy goats, donkeys and assorted ducks, chickens and geese!

I came to Ottershaw in 2009 when I became vicar and then a couple of months later joined the governing body. It has been great to be able to contribute to school life in this way as well as leading assemblies etc. I have an interest in science as I studied biochemistry and toxicology and worked in that area before studying theology. I enjoy walking my dog, seeing friends and family and travel.

I joined the governing body in December 2014 initially as a parent governor – but have since become a co-opted member. Sarah and I live a five-minute walk from the Ottershaw schools and have two daughters, one in Year 6, and the other in Year 4.

I was motivated to become a governor after seeing the passion and dedication from some existing members trying to assist the staff and help make the school as good as it can be for every child. I have served as vice chair, done work on literacy and reading, Early Years education, and produced a periodical governors’ newsletter. In working life I am a freelance journalist for national newspapers, mainly covering sport.

I have a strong connection with the local community having grown up and attended schools in New Haw before gaining a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham. I started my career as an engineer working for British Airways before becoming an IT consultant. These roles have given me great opportunities to travel and experience different cultures. My current role involves project, people and financial management.

I am a great believer in giving back to the community and welcome the opportunity to contribute to my daughters’ school.

I became a parent governor in March 2017 with the intention to help support the schools become the best that they can be. I look forward to making a contribution through the exciting times ahead.

I live locally with my husband and our 2 sons, one in the junior school and one in the infant school. In my working life I am Operations Manager for an Insurance Services company, and I am lucky to be able to balance this part-time with looking after my children. I enjoy keeping fit and I value quality time with my family and friends.

I became a co-opted Governor in April 2018. I live 10 minutes walk from the school with my wife Nici and our two girls, one of which joined the infant school in September 2017.

I work in Regulatory Operations for an Insurance firm in London and hope that some of that experience will be useful to the school going forward. I enjoy keeping fit and watching all sports and am a big supporter of Swansea City.

I look forward to making a contribution to school life and seeing the school develop in the coming years.
