As a Church of England School, Stanhope Barrington has three Foundation Governors who are nominated by the Church. I became a Foundation Governor of Stanhope Barrington School about 14 years ago, when my daughter was in nursery and I was pregnant with my son. Although they’ve both left, I’ve stayed on!
I have been the Stanhope Church secretary throughout, and one of my aims has always been to encourage good links with the Church. It has been good to see this build and develop, together with the warm ‘family’ atmosphere fostered within school, a living embodiment of ‘love thy neighbour’.
I am on the Finance committee and also take part in recruitment and regular health and safety inspections.
