Parent Governor Election February 2021


I contacted parents on 19th January to invite nominations for the parent governor vacancies.
I am delighted to say that there has been a good response and there are 2 candidates for the one vacancy. This means we must now hold a ballot.

I will be sending each parent a ballot with the names of the candidates (in alphabetical order)

Below are the personal statements from the candidates who are Tayla Bellfield and Arezou Razeghian. Please read their personal statements outlining why they each feel that they would be suitable candidates for the role of Parent Governor. The role of Governors is to act as a critical friend to the school, both supporting and holding the Senior Leadership Team to account in terms of how we spend money, shape the curriculum and achieve best results regarding academic progress and the personal, social and emotional development of the children in our care.

Personal Statements of the Candidates

Tayla Bellfield

With my passion to make individuals better every single day, starting with myself and my children but with my employees in my profession, I can relate highly to this position and would love to get involved. My professional experience of managing people/scenarios alongside monitoring performance, people and creating plans for improvement have given me a wealth of knowledge I can share.

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction– – I have been heavily involved with creating company and team visions/ culture &ethos- at my current and previous businesses.
  • Overseeing the financial support of the school and making sure it’s money is well spent– I can relate with the profession I am in too- I have experience with budgets, forecasting and reporting- In my profession I’m always looking at data in spreadsheets and reporting on them.
  • Holding the headteacher accountable for the educational performance of the school and its pupils- As a parent no-one is more concerned with the quality of teaching and learning provision of the school. I’ve got my child’s best interest at heart, so will of course have the school’s, which makes me committed to the schools continuous improvement.

I feel being a parent governor will allow me to gain a variety of new skills whilst developing ones I already have. Above all, I’m passionate about continual improvement and developing people and will put 100% heart into everything I do.

I would love to be considered for the position- it’s the perfect opportunity to make a difference.
