Mrs Katherine Saunders
I am a Mum to three boys who have all gone to Meath Green Infant School, 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.
Mr Thomas Withers
I have had an association with Meath Green since my eldest daughter started in 2017. My second daughter has just started in reception, with my youngest due to start in a few years time! I have only ever been impressed with the environment created by the staff, which has given the very best start to my children's education. I joined as a Governor to play a small part in that continuing so, others get the same benefit for the years to come. I work as a Risk Manager for a Wholesale Investment Bank - and hope to add some value with my experience around regulator engagements and governance models.
Miss Vicki Rose
I joined the governing body in September 2017 so that I could support a school in my local area and continue my knowledge of Key Stage 1. I have been teaching Key Stage 2 for ten years in different schools across the country and I currently teach Year 6. I am on the Senior Leadership Team at the school I work. I have a number of years of experience leading English at both Primary and Junior schools and have a particular interest in reading and writing. I am excited to play a part in helping the school to continue to give the children and staff the very best teaching and learning experience that it can offer.
Mr Neil Agate
My son started at the school in 2018 and I was keen to become involved so decided to become a governor after he joined. I am interested in understanding how the school operates, the challenges it faces and offering support to overcome them. I look forward to helping support the school’s continued growth and improvement. I have lived in Horley for many years and work in the construction industry so will try to bring some of my local knowledge and skills to the governing body.
Mr John Williamson
I joined the Governors this year and look forward to helping to ensure the school continues to provide the excellent learning place it has been for all the time I have been involved. All my three ( grown up ) children and two of my grandchildren have benefited from going to the school . I currently work in the NHS but worked as a police officer and an investigator for about 40 years. I am involved in the Pathfinders Scout Group in Horley and was involved in Horley Round Table for many years. I hope I will bring to the board of governors years of experience in fundraising , dealing with different stakeholders and a willingness to learn and look at imaginative ways to deal with the challenges ahead.
Mr Adam Bayliss
My son started at Meath Green Infant School in 2017 and my daughter has now just started in reception. I've found the school to offer a very supportive and enriching learning experience through dedicated leadership, teaching and support staff. I'm interested in learning more about how the school is run together with the challenges that it encounters. My work involves the placement of large complex insurance programmes requiring the identification and mitigation of risk and exposure through effective risk management practice. Through my role as Governor I hope to offer a positive contribution towards the ongoing development of the school.
Mrs Rachel Nixon
I am a mum to a boy and a girl, the youngest now in Year 1 and the oldest having left for junior school. The whole experience of having children at the school has been wonderful - both my children have thrived and the staffing team has been so friendly and supportive I really wanted to be part of the governing body to offer, what I hope, is a positive and supportive contribution to what the school does. As a Senior Civil Servant I am a senior leader with experience of working with a wide range of people and organisations to deliver positive outcomes. I hope to bring my experience and skills to my role as a Governor.
