Meet our Governors

Mrs T Chattaway Co-opted Governor When the position for Parent Governor became available in 2016, I felt it was something I wanted to be involved with, as I liked everything about Westfield Juniors, it's values and its focus on the children's education, whilst still being fun and a nice place to be. I was keen to learn about being a governor and its importance with the running of the school. The governing board made me feel very welcome and guided me through its functions, whilst still listening to my views and having an openness to new ideas. All 3 of my daughters have attended Westfield Juniors (and Infants) and all had different abilities, my eldest has just gained her degree (a first) and my youngest has Autism, this is where i saw the true colours of WJ, as they were amazing at meeting her needs and supporting her (and me) through the years, preparing her for Sat's and Redmoor. For me and with all the success and help my girls have had from Westfield, I felt I wanted to give something back, so as a qualified SEN practitioner, I volunteer once a week in IH, as this is a subject close to my heart. I help with 'meet & greet' evenings and other events, as well as being part of the team for the coffee stop. For me it is a great time to meet and chat to some of the parents and is something I thoroughly enjoy. I joined as a Parent Governor, but as my youngest has now moved to Redmoor, I have been recently voted to stay on as a Co-operative Governor, which has made me so pleased and look forward to continuing volunteering and always having Westfield Juniors best interest at heart.
