Emma Jones - Vice Chair of Governors
I wanted to become a governor at Tidemill to support the school, champion its values and help make it an even better place to learn and work. I became a governor because I have professional skills as a journalist, broadcaster and magazine editor that are hopefully valuable. I also have a broad interest in education. I have three children who went to Tidemill and have gone to secondary school and one still attending Tidemill. I therefore have a vested interest in helping maintain the school's high standards.
I am also the Literacy link governor. This means I liaise with the Writing and Reading leaders, to support them in their roles, and communicate with the governing body. We most recently worked together on National Book Week. I am Chair of the Standards and Community committee, which closely monitors and evaluates performance in these areas, including that of Pupil Premium children (my other link governor role!).
