Nominated Governor for Safeguarding, Racial Equality and Looked After Children
I moved to Felixstowe with my wife two years ago from West Yorkshire though I had previously lived in London and Essex for many years.
I spent 30 years in the police in London following which I worked for the Early Years directorate of OFSTED until I retired. I have two daughters, one of whom is Deputy Head of a large comprehensive school in West London. I have previously been a governor at a secondary school in Colchester and a primary school in Castleford, West Yorkshire.
I am currently a Local Authority governor at a large primary school in Ipswich in addition to my role at Grange. My particular interests are in Child Protection and in ensuring disadvantaged children are supported to achieve as well as their fellow pupils.
