Sarah Kesterson

Pecuniary interests: Assistant Head teacher, Shakespeare Infant School

Type of Governor: Staff

Governor role: Pupil Premium, Safer Recruitment

Committees: Standards

Further Information: As a Staff Governor it is important that I contribute to whole school initiatives and development in a strategic way. I feel being a Governor gives me a great opportunity to do this whilst also seeing the bigger picture of school life. As the Assistant Head teacher it is important to be able to explain and present ideas and thoughts of the Senior Leadership team to the Governing Body and to be held accountable for the results that those ideas may bring. It is vital that the Governing Body holds the Senior Leadership Team to account in Ofsted terms so that school leadership may be at its most effective. I look forward to being an active and informative member of the Governing Body and in particular, the Standards Committee in the forthcoming years.

Claire Newton

Pecuniary interests: None

Type of Governor: Parent

Governor role: SEN/LAC, Outcomes for Children

Committees: Standards

Further Information: I joined as a parent governor recently as I have a keen interest in how the school is run and the support it offers to both the children and parents. I have a daughter who has successfully progressed through the school and recently moved up to the juniors, a son in year 1 and a newborn. My children are completely different in their interests and abilities and I think it is important that all children are encouraged to do their best and enjoy school, and make the most of their abilities.

Pecuniary interests: None

Type of Governor: Co-opted

Governor role: Health and Safety

Committees: General Purpose

Further Information: My family and I moved back to England from the US in large part in the interest of a British education for our two young girls. We have a daughter going into Year 3 at the Junior school having enjoyed the last 2 years at the infant school and another daughter in year R at Shakespeare Infant School this year. I don’t take the high level of education standards in England for granted and I realize that it takes a large effort of both professional and volunteer contributors to maintain that standard. I hope to be a constructive contributor to the effort to continue to meet those high standards at Shakespeare for our new neighbours and our own girls.
