The Chair of Governors
I became a Governor because my daughter was a pupil in Year 1 at the time and I wanted to know how school worked behind the scenes and what I could do to help.
As Chair of Governors I lead the main governor meetings and I have to do a lot of preparation for that. I am also the main contact between the Headteacher and the governors and also with the Local Authority
Howard Park is always praised by visitors for being a friendly, welcoming school and I agree with them. The staff are all very committed and hard-working and work together as a team. The pupils are committed to learning and we get a lot of help from the parents. The school is dedicated to helping all the pupils that come to us no matter what their circumstances. I like to think we can improve the life chances of all.
