I have been a governor at The Devonshire Hill Nursery and Primary School since 2012 and Chair of Governors since December 2015.
Having been born, raised and educated in Haringey; attending Devonshire Hill myself from reception to year 6, it felt only natural to request to become a governor here when the opportunity presented itself. I currently run my own consulting firm specialising in providing advice on areas such as the procurement of services and goods, cost reduction and organisational strategy unlocking both hard (financial) and soft (process and efficiency) benefits enabling a positive financial impact across my client’s organisations.
As Chair I work very closely with the Headteacher to ensure that the school is performing well and that we remain on target to obtain Outstanding at the next Ofsted inspection. This means making sure that Ms. D’Abreu meets her performance targets as well as supporting and challenging the school’s decisions ensuring that we always provide an outstanding provision of education for all our children, regardless of ability.
