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.
I am delighted to serve as a parent governor at Green Street Green School. I am passionate about education, raising standards and attainment at all levels. I have worked as a teacher for over a decade and currently head a department at secondary level.
I’m very much looking forward to supporting the exemplary work of staff at the school and providing a dual perspective as both parent and educator.
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 am a British diplomat with five children aged 9 to 25 which means I have twenty years of involvement with primary education as a parent. My job takes me abroad regularly so in addition to British and British international schools my children have attended Swedish state and American international schools. I have served on school boards overseas and now that I am back in the UK I want to use these experiences for the benefit of my local community.
I believe the role of a governing board is to support the Head and staff in providing a learning environment that meets the needs of all pupils, which includes constructive challenge when appropriate. My background means I can bring some new perspectives to the work of the Board and the school as we strive to deliver our vision and values.
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.
