Message from new Parent Governor, Sarah Parsons


Hi Whittingham Parents,

My name is Sarah Parsons and I have just become a parent governor at Whittingham Primary Academy. I want to introduce myself to you because I am here to make sure that parents' voices are heard by the school management team and the Silver Birch Academy Trust Board.  

One of the first things I want to do is to make sure that we can communicate with each other as easily as possible. In time, I hope this will include social media like Facebook and Twitter, but for now you can reach me at this email address; sarah@sba.london. You could also stop me for a chat if you see me at the school gates! 

If becoming a parent governor sounds like something you'd like to do too, the school is looking for another volunteer. I've only been to one meeting so far, but I can reassure you that there's plenty of support available and the other governors are lovely.  You don't need any specific knowledge or experience to volunteer. I've never done anything like this before, but I've already found I have lots of skills that are going to be really useful. 

Please feel free to drop me line if you have any questions about my experience. I'll answer if I can! Otherwise you can contact Lucy Carter at governance@sba.london, or call, text or Whatsapp her on 07931582594. She's the expert who can give you all the facts you need to know. 

I'm really looking forward to working with all of you, whether as fellow governors or fellow parents, to make sure Whittingham Academy is a happy and successful school. 

Thank you
