David has lived in Forest Row since 2014 and has two children attending the school. He is keen to keep the school at the heart of the community. He is an optometrist and has a family background in education. The time he has spent as a parent reader encouraged him to become a parent governor in 2022

During her time as a governor she has been a treasurer and has sat on both a premises and a curriculum committee. Angela sees being a governor as a wonderful opportunity to contribute to the life of the community and to be involved in the future of the lives of our children which is ultimately contributing to the future for us all.

Local Authority Governor

Ian first joined the GB as a parent governor when both his children attended the school. Ian has prime responsibility for Health and Safety and Safeguarding. He regularly visits the school as safeguarding governor and to hear readers. This means he is able to speak with children and make sure that they feel safe and happy.
