Local Authority Governor
Our Local Authority Governor
Niki was appointed in November 2014 and is Chair of the Curriculum Committee. She is our Local Authority governor and the designated governor for Safeguarding. Her subject links are with English and PSHCE.
I am a Local Authority Governor, having previously been an Associate Governor and prior to that a Parent Governor for 4 years. I have 2 boys, who both attended Walberton and Binsted C of E school, the youngest of whom left here in July 2015.
I have always taken a keen interest in their school life, helping out regularly in the classroom and at various events. This involvement gave me a greater insight into the school, which has helped me enormously in my role as a governor. I 100% believe that children need to feel safe and secure in their school environment so as to progress, develop a love for life-long learning and enable them to reach their full potential. I aim to contribute to that experience through my work as a governor.
I love living here, enjoying the close proximity to both beach and countryside. A few years ago I studied and achieved a Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning. I now work as a Teaching Assistant in a primary school.
