Community member, currently chair of the Management Committee. I have been a member of the Management Committee for 9 years and Chair since 2013. Prior to my retirement I taught in Southwark, for 10 years at the pupil referral unit. I then specialised in Behaviour Management and worked with School Improvement. I bring this educational experience to the Management Committee. I choose to be involved with SILS as I consider its role is a vital one within Southwark. I wish to support the head teacher and staff and contribute to the wider aspirations of SILS.
Authority member since January 2015. Currently vice chair of the management committee.
SILS staff from September 2009. I am delighted to welcome you to the SILS website. As a small school on two locations within Southwark, we start from the belief in the power of education to transform lives and we aim to give every one of our students the best possible learning experience to prepare them for their lives beyond school.
Community Governor. Since joining SILS I have been the link governor for management and strategy. I particularly enjoy working with the head teacher on the annual review and thinking through the strategy for the school going forward. I started out in the NHS as a health care assistant and am now a senior manager providing services to clinical commissioning groups across the South of England. I have served on NHS Boards for the last 15 years as well as on Housing Association governing bodies. I have lived in Peckham for the last 24 years and am married with 3 children. I am also a Trustee of the Copleston Centre. My interests Badminton, cycling, politics and Charlton Athletic.
I was delighted to take up this position and contribute to our local community. Our youths deserve, and need, support and engagement and I hope to help provide this working with the governing body.
I am a self-employed barrister. I am married with two children living in Southeast London.
I have worked in Local Government for over 35 Years in different roles such as managing the Lambeth Welfare Rights Unit, I left after the unit was closed during a round of cut to the services in the Borough. I decide to go into Education to be able to spend more time with my family and to learn more about what my children were being taught & how best to help and develop. For the past 16 years I have worked as an Examination Officer in a Local Secondary school in Peckham. As well as working in the school I have been a parent & staff Governor for over 20 Years. I live in Southwark & married for 33 years with three sons & grandchildren.
I am a trustee & qualified football coach for a local Community Football club in Peckham. My husband started the club in 1999; I joined in after I saw the impact the club had on our young people. We developed the club from being just a local club football club to a FA Chartered Standard Club then to a Community Club the first of only two in Southwark. Our aims are to be able young people boys & girls to enjoy football in a safe secure & friendly environment regardless of their backgrounds and ability. We try to educate them also by arranging workshops such as gun crimes, teenage pregnancy and subjects that related to young people. Development is very important so we organise training courses such as referee, football coach training to get them qualified so in turn they can put something back into the club, we are still going strong & now seeing my grandchildren and other young people who were there now coming to volunteer and some with their own children. I enjoy living, working supporting members in my community.
Community Governor since October 2016. I am the Deputy Headteacher at The Charter School, where I was employed as an Assistant Headteacher in September 2006. I also taught PE and held various middle management positions at St. Thomas the Apostle College between 1996 and 2006. I am the Chair of the Southwark Secondary Schools ‘In Year Fair Access’ forum and hold Bed (Hons) and NPQH qualifications.
I have lived in South London since I attended the University of Greenwich in 1989. I live with my wife and three children, and numerous pets – including cats, fish and a mad cockapoo! When I have time to pursue my interests away from work and family, I play cricket and golf and enjoy Pike and Catfish angling. My children and I are also Charlton Athletic season ticket holders. I also love reading fiction, particularly crime, though have just entered the absorbing literary world of ‘Game of Thrones’.
I have recently been appointed as a governor at SILS (Sept 2017) where one of my sons went before being transferred to a mainstream school. I am looking forward to learning and understanding more about school governing bodies and contributing to the development of the young students who might be disadvantaged on the basis of their disability or circumstances. I am trained teacher and qualified Educational Psychologist / Counsellor by background , but currently working as a registered mental health nurse in a medium secure unit. I am married with four children.I love reading, writing, travelling.
