Why did they want to be a Governor at The Hall Park Academy?

Had been a governor at Eastwood Comprehensive School and having seen the school go through some difficult times, I wanted to contribute to the support pupils and staff as Hall Park Academy moves into a brighter future.

I am often faced with challenging and difficult situations which often people at times when they are at their most vulnerable. This skill is one that as a governor allows me to often take a different approach when needed. Having worked in the private and public sector, I am able to be resourceful whilst keeping within set parameters.

I am able to ask questions which others may find difficult to allow for complex issues to be debated in a way that can be understood. I ensure that educational jargon is avoided and thus allowing for greater clarity.  

Is this Governor linked into any specific department or area within The Hall Park Academy?

Not currently linked to any departments.
