Prevent and British Values Audit by Stacy Sharman, School Governor  September 2017

Here are the names of our school Governors, If you need to contact one of them please send a letter into school for their attention.

Chair of Governors: Louise Riley

 

As Chair of Governors for Watermill school I have witnessed the amazing journey that the school has travelled over the last few years. I truly believe that Watermill is unique in its approach to education, which was recognised in our most recent Ofsted report October 2017, the outcome of which is testament to all the hard work and commitment provided by every member of the school community.

 

As a school we dream big and care hugely for the school community and the city of Stoke in Trent. Through well-established partnership work, with a network of special and mainstream schools, we are able to provide high quality support across the city and share best practice, enabling the best possible education to be available for all children, whatever their individual needs.

 

In my role as an educationalist I have worked with many schools across the country, assisting them in achieving the highest standards of education for the communities in which they serve. Watermill exceeds my high expectations, staff and students always lead by example in their caring, innovative and unique approach to education, something which I am incredibly proud to be part of.

 

Vice Chair: Vacant

I’m a parent governor and happy to support our school in whatever way I can. I grew up in a diverse multicultural part of Cardiff, moved to Stoke in my 20’s as my partner worked down the mines and am still here over 25 years later where I work for a local bank. I love spending time with my boys. The eldest is the first in the family to attend university and the youngest makes me so proud with the progress he’s making at Watermill. If I get any spare time I like walking. I’ve done Ben Nevis and Snowdon for charity and covered most of our lovely Peak District.
