Let us introduce ourselves…
Sarah Warren: I have 2 children, one at Downend school and the other still at The Tynings. I became Co-opted Governor in January 2013 and took on the role of Chair of Governors in October 2015. I am also Pupil Premium link Governor. Prior to being a Governor, I was involved in the PSFA for a number of years. It is very important to me that children have the best possible primary educational experience, both academically and socially, and I enjoy working with the school to this end. I work 4 days a week as a Project, Service and Delivery Manager in a Primary Care organisation.
Simon Jones: ‘It is a privilege and honour to be Vice – Chair of Governors and Safeguarding link on The Tynings governing body. I am passionate about every child being given the best opportunities in life and education and strive for this with my input into the school. I have 2 children in year 1 and 3, each of whom have made excellent progress in all of their subjects. We love the community feel, ethos and the fact that our children love coming to school every day!
