|Samantha Curtis Chair and Community Governor - Child Protection Governor||
I have been a Governor at Woodhill for five years now and became the Chair of Governors in 2012.
I became a Governor because I was interested in seeing how a school was run behind the scenes. I quickly realised it wasn't as simple as it would appear. It has given me a new found respect for the teaching profession.
I thoroughly enjoy my role being in school and seeing the children develop.
Over the years I have seen many positive changes and look forward to being part of many more.
Ed Nedjari Vice Chair and Local Authority Governor
I am Chair of the Resources Committee, and Vice-Chair of the overall governing body here at Woodhill and I have been a governor for just under three years, as well as being a trustee on the Inspire Partnership Board.
|Ed Britton Local Authority Governor||
I have lived in South East London all my working life, have enjoyed the great sense of community here and am pleased, by being a governor at Woodhill, to have the opportunity to be able to give something back, especially in the area of education. It is so important. Great education has the power to transform lives for the better.
I have been a governor since 2016 and am delighted to be part of Woodhill Primary School and the Inspire Partnership. Woodhill is a place that strives for the best in all things for its pupils and staff. The enthusiasm for learning here is immediately striking and I am pleased to be able to contribute and support this wherever I can.
My own children, three daughters, are well past primary age now. But the memory of how important their first school was to each of them as a foundation to their lives is still very much with me. I am determined to do all I can to help Woodhill give a great start to all the children that pass through this school.
I had a variety of jobs in the finance sector before stopping work in 2018. It’s great to be able to put my management experience and numeric skills to practical use to the benefit of Woodhill school.
|Emma Parsons Parent Governor||
I am a parent Governor.
There have been many positive changes recently in the school and I wanted to become a parent Governor to see how those changes can further develop.
This is my first school Governor position and I am excited that l have been given the opportunity to join the team of Governors, and support the school in its continued efforts to provide the highest, fully inclusive, education to the children.
I became a newly elected Woodhill Parent Governor in November 2017 because as a hands-on single parent, I wanted to be actively involved in the educational development of my two sons who joined Reception in September 2017.
My professional background is marketing and advertising having worked for multinationals and business start-ups in the UK, Europe and Africa over the last 25 years.
As a dual British-African citizen, I am interested in championing the diversity of Woodhill Primary and to ensure that Woodhill gets the recognition and publicity it deserves for its turnaround performance.
I was appointed as a School Governor in May 2019. I am delighted to have the opportunity here at Woodhill to help develop an excellent school. I passionately believe that a well ran school benefits not only children but the community as a whole.
I worked as a teacher in Spain in 2010-2011, and worked with a number of wonderful teachers. I observed how well children and young adults responded to an inclusive environment, and saw how well effective teaching engages students. As such, education remains very close to my heart.
Originally from Devon, I moved to Woolwich in 2013, and have worked for the Bank of England since 2016. During my time at the Bank of England, I’ve looked closely at new banks’ applications – particularly in regards to their effective governance and senior manager appointments. My experience in assessing governance and effective senior management is something I hope will positively impact my role as Governor at Woodhill school.
