Anna Harris, Chair of Governors and Co-opted Governor
I first started volunteering as a Parent Governor in 2008. I am assistant manager of a local disability rights organisation, supporting adults who have a learning disability to speak up for themselves. I also hold a Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector. I am passionate about making a difference and working together to give the children in our local community the very best start in life.
Wendy Olive, Vice-chair of Governors and Co-opted Governor
I have been a governor for over ten years, initially as a parent governor at Branksome Heath and later as a co-opted governor of the federation. I have been volunteering at my daughters’ schools for the past 15 years and have taken a keen interest in their education. I want to ensure that children from our local community have the best possible opportunities to be the best they can be and reach their full potential.
Quenten Walker, Co-opted Governor
I have been a governor since 1990. During that time I have been a governor at five schools in the Poole area. I have not only been Chair of Governors on more than one occasion, but I have also chaired many committees and been Chair of Poole Governors’ Forum. Making a difference, no matter how small, it what is most important to me.
Carol Brown, Staff Governor
I am part of the admin team in the office at Sylvan. I became a governor in 2008 and greatly enjoy the role of 'critical friend', providing both challenge and support to our Primary Federation. Through all the challenges that governance brings, I try to draw on my background in education and my experience as a parent in order to champion the people at the heart of the schools: the pupils and staff.
Bert Buckley, Chair of Resources Committee and Co-opted Governor
I first became a governor in 2014. My background is in construction and further education, with expertise in HR. My interest is Maths and, having taught school leavers Maths, I realise the importance of a strong foundation on those essential skills from an early age.
Diana Crisp, Monitoring responsibility for Achievement, Co-opted Governor
I have been a governor since the federation began in 2015 and was a governor at Sylvan prior to that. I am very committed to working for the federation and now with the Hamwic Education Trust. I have been a teacher for 30 years, 23 of those in Poole. I now work with student teachers linked to a university, and mentor them when they are on teaching practice. This has helped me to keep up to date with new government policies.
Sandra Mackrow, Parent Governor
I was a governor at both Sylvan and Branksome Heath before the two schools federated. I am a mum to six children who have all attended both schools and now my grandson is following in their footsteps. I have strong links within the local community and am proactive in supporting many areas of school life, including the PTFA. I value education and follow my children through their educational journey, seeing and understanding the federation’s changes and challenges, and also working to give something back.
