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 four children who went to Tidemill , now at secondary school, so had a vested interest in helping maintain the school's high standards when I was elected as a parent governor. I now continue supporting and challenging the school in my role as a Trust governor.
I am the English 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 work together on Tidemill's Book Week which is an important annual event. 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!).
