Hello my name is David Caulfield and I am a Community Governor and Vice Chair. I have been a governor at this school for about 10 years. I first started as a parent governor when my own children were at primary school. When I first became a governor I had no real idea of what it involved but since then I have found that lots of other governors started in the same way, different people from different backgrounds with different abilities.
The main thing a governor needs is simple common sense. I have been asked what I want for the children in our school. I want all our children to reach their full potential whatever their abilities and I want them to be young people we can all be proud to have in our community. There are any number of examples I can give but the most recent involves a child who was given a choice between football or a Remembrance Sunday parade, he chose the parade.
I currently serve on the following committees:
- Every Child Matters
- Head Teacher’s Performance
- Hearings / First
- Link Governor for Geography, History and R.E
