River Mead Academy Advisors

River Mead School is part of The Mead Academy Trust. The responsibility for the strategic management of the school is shared between the Head of School, The Board of Directors and the Academy Advisors.

The Academy Advisors support River Mead School and have a general responsibility for the strategic management of the school. They are not expected to take detailed decisions about the day to day running of the school – that is the function of the Head of School.

I chose to become an advisor at River Mead as I have strong links with the school stretching back for twenty five years when my children attended the school. The school provided them both with a love of learning and a strong foundation on which to build. I taught in Melksham for a number of years, before moving to Trowbridge where I am now a headteacher. I hope that my knowledge of the school and its community, alongside my educational background will enable me to support the school on its journey forwards.

I am the Chair of The Mead School Advisory Committee. I have been an advisor (previously called governor) since 2003 at The Mead Community Primary School. I became an advisor because I was impressed by the passion and commitment of the staff and I wanted to make a contribution to my children’s school. I love the school and all it stands for and want to make sure The Mead offers the best for all the children it cares for. I take my role as an advisor very seriously and work as hard as I can to fulfil this role. I feel proud to be associated with The Mead Academy Trust and I have to admit that what I enjoy the most is spending time with the many different children and seeing them blossom!
