Welcome to the Governing Body section of the website. The aim is to provide information on the role of the Governing Body and to help you to become more familiar with all the governors and the statutory duties by which we are legally bound. The profiles have been written by the governors themselves and should help everyone get to know the governors a little more.
All Governors are contactable via the School Office, or by email to email@example.com except where indicated below. You can contact the Chair of Governors directly on firstname.lastname@example.org. We also encourage parents to tell us how they perceive the school through Parent View. We are always keen to hear your views and if you wish to discuss anything with the Governors then please do not hesitate to contact us. We hope that this section will help you to understand better what we do, who we are and why we are serving as Governors.

My child left Greystones last year after seven happy and successful years. I grew up in Sheffield and have lived in S11 on and off since my early teens so I have a natural affinity for the local area and a desire to see the community thrive. Over the last twenty years I have worked in schools in South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and London, initially as a secondary school science teacher and more recently as a teaching assistant and cover supervisor in primary and secondary schools respectively. I now work as a Specialist Learning Mentor for Higher Education students with additional learning needs. I have a personal and professional interest in matters related to SEND, with particular insights into Autism Spectrum Conditions.
