Mrs Katherine Saunders
I am a Mum to three boys who have all gone to Meath Green Infants, the youngest having just started in reception. My eldest left to go to Junior school a couple of years ago and my middle son is in Year 2. Throughout having children at the school I've been impressed with how friendly and supportive the staff are and all three of my boys have thrived here. The school has a really positive ethos and the Head and Senior Teachers are really keen to build on the schools good reputation and continue to improve, this makes being part of the governing body really enjoyable. Having previously worked as an NHS Hospital Manager I now run my own healthcare consultancy company and work in hospitals around the South East of England, hopefully the management and finance skills I use in my work are useful in my role as a Governor.
Mrs Katie Learwood
I was elected as a governor in 2015. I have 2 boys, Charlie who is currently in year 2 and Noah who will hopefully start at Meath Green in a year’s time. Since being part of the school as a parent I have been impressed by the community atmosphere and the supportive nature of the staff. I have taught at Holmesdale School in Reigate for 17 years and have had a variety of roles in that time, such as computing leader for 16 years. I am currently the leader of year 2 and Music. I like to feel that with my experience in education I have a variety of skills that I can offer to the school.
Mrs Jo Rhodes
My eldest son attended Meath Green Infant School before moving on to Junior school, and my youngest remains here now. I have worked for the NHS for more than 20 years and am currently the Associate Chief Pharmacist at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. My job involves constantly checking and improving the quality of the service we provide to our patients, and I was delighted to be given the opportunity to utilize these skills within the school to support the teaching staff in their mission to continuously develop and enhance the learning experience for the children.
Mrs Louise Boughen
I've been involved with the school since my daughter joined in 2011 and was chair of the PTA for a year and a half while she was at the school. When my son started in 2015 I wanted to continue my involvement with the school and was interested in understanding more about how the school operates. I therefore became a governor at the end of 2015. As a governor I enjoy having greater insight into all of the various ways in which the staff continuously work to improve the learning experience of the pupils in the school, and it is great to be able help support the school’s continued growth and improvement. I currently work at a professional services firm so try to bring some of my skills to the governing body.
Mr Stuart Kelly
I became a Governor of Meath Green Infants in 2015, but unlike other Governors I don’t have children at the school. The Governor role is something that is important to me, to help children to nurture and grow and to be the very best they can and I believe Meath Green affords each child the opportunity to do just that. I work for a London based bank, having been in the banking / finance sector all my working life and whilst high pressure is something that I enjoy. Outside of work cars and bikes are my passion, despite having an old Land Rover that seems to demand ever increasing love and attention !
Miss Vicki Rose
I was a Store Manager for Marks and Spencer for 12 years and since having my two children have been a School Business Manager at an outstanding Infant School in Surrey. More recently I have gained my CIPD qualification and taken up the post of HR Manager in the school.
I now have some time to carry out a voluntary role and I hope that my skills in education and the commercial world are able to help support the brilliant work that the staff at the school do. I am passionate about seeing all children learn and develop, whilst supporting the workforce that enable that learning.
