Mrs S Morgan – Head of School
Mr A Reeves – Chair of Governors
I joined the Governing Board in December 2018. I am passionate about children developing to their full potential and wanted to offer my business experience to the school.
I am a self-employed IT consultant with over 20 years of delivering technology projects for a variety of blue-chip clients.
When my children were at primary school I served on their PTA / SHA and for the last 10 years I have been a Trustee of a children's charity operating in the London Borough of Lewisham.
Green Street Green has been a part of my life for over 20 years. I joined GSG in 1997 as a pupil in Reception, and during my time at the school I was inspired to look into teaching. While attending secondary school I continued to develop my interest in education and I regularly volunteered at Green Street Green, spending a large portion of my time in the Speech & Language Classrooms. After completing my degree in Primary Education, I landed my dream job at a school that means so much to me. I became a Staff Governor in 2015 as I wanted to contribute to the continuing growth of Green Street Green. As well as teaching in Year 6, I am the English subject leader, helping to lead the school in learning and teaching in this area. It is an honour to represent Green Street Green and be part of a team that ensures our children are resilient, life-long learners being exposed to exciting learning experiences.
I joined the Governing Board as a Staff Governor in Spring 2017. I have two children at Green Street Green in year 3 and year 6, and have worked at the school since 2014, enjoying a variety of support roles within several year groups as well as the Speech and Language Provision. I currently work as an Intervention Support Assistant in year 4, and also represent the school as an Autism Champion - coming together with primary and secondary professionals across Bromley schools to promote inclusive practice and greater understanding.Being both a non-teaching staff member and parent on the Governing Board enables me to appreciate issues which effect the school from several perspectives. I am committed to being part of a Governing Body which is focussed on building an enabling and safe environment where children are excited by their learning and able to excel.
My name is Vicky Parry and along with currently being a supply teacher for SOLA, a long-term ex-member of GSG staff, I am a Reception parent this year and my older son is now an ex-pupil at secondary school.
There is no doubt that it’s always a busy time for us all, but I think this is also an exciting time for our school. There are positive vibes of change around the school; with Mrs Morgan’s appointment and OFSTED’s latest report, I really want to represent the parents’ views during this time. In the past I worked as teacher in the mainstream school and in the Speech and Language Classes, I have seen many changes at the school, I think it’s still the right choice as a parent and I really believe that we can build the school back up again. The role of Governor is often described as that of a ‘critical friend’, I plan to be that, as a parent and a teacher I also bring my knowledge & experience, as well as my enthusiasm to the role of Parent Governor.
I have spent 12 years as a senior manager in the professional training and higher education business in one of the world’s largest for-profit education companies. I have gained significant experience in leadership, human resources and change management. As a qualified Chartered Management Accountant, I have extensive commercial expertise.
I am a parent of two primary aged children who attend a nearby school and am delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to Green Street Green's future success.
Ms J Tobbell. - Vice Chair of Governors.
- Co-Opted Governor
I am Julia Tobbell, a qualified solicitor advocate practising at one of the largest law firms in the world. I joined the firm in 2008, having studied Law with French Law at Oxford University (and Panthéon-Assas University, Paris). I specialise in commercial property disputes and act for the country's largest and highest profile land owners such as pension funds, development companies and infrastructure projects. In my time acting for commercial clients, I have become very familiar with issues such as corporate governance, handling confidential information, and addressing reputation/risk management concerns. Running a large case requires considerable expertise in managing deadlines, teams and documents, as well as having a constant eye on overall strategy and direction. I am very comfortable with understanding and drafting legal documents and explaining their significance to non-lawyers.
My son was born in 2016 and, after my return from maternity leave, I began to think about ways in which I could make a difference to children's welfare in my local area. I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to become a Co-Opted Governor at Green Street Green and look forward to helping it continue to thrive.
I have a long and happy history with Green Street Green. My children attended the school and I began my career in education here, as a teaching assistant, many moons ago. I went on to complete my teacher training at Green Street Green and, after a few years of teaching at other schools in the borough, I was delighted to return in 2014. I have worked across all of the primary key stages and am passionate about delivering a curriculum that engages and inspires children to love learning and to want to face challenges with confidence every day.
I have been a successful English Lead and am now very proud to be the Early Years Leader. My focus is to ensure that our early years provision prepares our youngest learners to be ready to cope with the demands of the National Curriculum as well rounded, independent and resilient learners.
As a governor, I want to contribute to the exciting future of Green Street Green.
I became a School Governor to get more involved with the local community. I have been living here happily for over 10 years. I applied for the position and it is my honour to be a Finance Governor since September 2017 with Green Street Green Primary School. I am a qualified accountant with more than 15 years’ experience in accounting and tax in both SME and large companies.I look forward to working with the excellent staff and governors at school and to help us all get to where we want to be.
In my role as parent governor I feel I can positively contribute to the school’s continued improvement. I will work with the parents, teachers, leadership team and other governors to help achieve and meet the objectives set, which will provide our children with the best platform to be successful. I have 2 children who attend the school and I’m passionate about their education.I have many years of experience within Financial Institutions where I have held many senior positions and will look to apply this knowledge and skill set to my role as parent governor.
