Governors

Meet the Governors 

The governing board, with the headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Governing boards have three core strategic functions:

 

•         Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

•         Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and

•         Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

I am a parent governor at St Mary Magdalene Church of England School.

Having previously worked within the education sector for over 10 years and having an IT background, I am very familiar with how a school operates on a day to day basis and have the knowledge of this.

As well as my daughter attending the school, I am very much interested in fully supporting and helping the school and its staff to achieve every child receiving the best education. My interests and hobbies include reading, traveling and spending time with family.

Neil Kingston

 

I moved to West Bromwich 10 years ago and have 3 children. My eldest 2 are currently at St Mary Magdalene and I am hoping that my youngest will also join the school in a few years. I am very committed to contributing to the continued success of the school and having worked in finance for over 20 years, including a period supporting schools' finances in a local authority, I have a wealth of experience that I will be able to use in my role as parent governor. I am a keen runner and triathlete, so you may see me dropping off the children in my shorts.
