Our Governors

Our Local Governing Body is a fantastic group of volunteers who support the school by acting as critical friends, by challenging us and holding us to account and by supporting school improvement. They monitor learning and behaviour in school and closely analyse progress and attainment through the year.

Some Governors hold additional responsibilities such as SEN, safeguarding and Pupil Premium.

Chair

Pupil Premium

I have been involved with Garrick Green since 2009 when my oldest daughter started in Reception and have been a Governor since 2012.  I have lived in Old Catton for 13 years, have 2 daughters and run my own business.
Alice Hewitt (parent) Vice Chair

Safeguarding

I am a parent Governor and have responsibility for safeguarding.

My daughter attended Garrick Green and I wanted to get involved in the Governing Body as a way to understand and play a part in the way the education of children at the school is driven.

I live locally and love the community feel of Old Catton, something which I feel is very strongly mirrored in school.

Lisa Sturman (staff)   I have been a Governor at Garrick Green since 2002, firstly as a Parent Governor and then from 2008, as a Staff Governor.  In school I teach Reception and took over the role of SENCo in January 2016.

SEND

Head Teacher Performance Management

I am retired but spent my working life in finance, administration and teaching in the public and private sector.

It is rewarding belonging to the LGB and responding to the responsibilities and challenges at the school and to work towards enabling the pupils to fulfil their potential whilst enjoying their learning experiences.
