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 Academy Adviser for River Mead because I am really impressed with everything the school is doing. I hope my wide experience of education as a secondary headteacher and more recently as an education consultant will enable me to make a difference.

I am delighted to be able to join River Mead School as an Academy Advisor. Having been part of the Mead Academy Trust as a teacher I am excited now to be able to support the River Mead community in this role.

Having taught Music for many years at The Mead Community Primary School I have seen first-hand the wonderful benefit and joy participating in the arts gives children, and how this can shape their skills and confidence in so many other areas of their learning.  I am particularly looking forward to supporting River Meads arts provision.

From my own experience, and with many of my wider family also involved in teaching I am acutely aware of the demanding role that school staff have. I am very keen to support the well-being of the staff at River Mead School.

I look forward to meeting your children and the staff at River Mead 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.

Having three children currently attending Rivermead School, I am personally invested in it and thrilled to join the Academy Advisory Group. With a foot in both worlds I hope to act as a conduit between the parents of Rivermead, and the AAG, ensuring that voices are heard. As a Creative Producer and founder of my own arts production company my work centres around social engaged arts practice. I believe enrichment activities can be transformative for children and families at all ages and stages of their lives, enabling us to connect with one another in novel and inspiring ways.

I have joined the Academy Advisory team as I believe a good  primary education to be the most important step in a persons life. A good foundation allows  you to build a good future.  I hope to support the school in its mission.
