7Kevin Harker - Chair of Governors - Co-opted GovernorI am Vice Principal of The Sutton Academy and a proud member of the governing body of Sherdley Primary. I believe in the importance of education and the impact it has on children's life chances. I have the highest expectations for all in everything that we do to ensure a calm, meaningful and happy environment for students and staff to thrive in.
5Cathey Briars - Vice Chair of Governors - Co-opted GovernorAs a co-opted governor, I am keen to ensure that the voice, aspirations and priorities of the parents of Sherdley pupils are a key part of school decision making at the most strategic level. My background as a teacher, and subsequent career supporting and writing about parental mental health are probably why I was elected to the role - but far more useful are the experiences I live every day raising two inquisitive, exhausting and terrifyingly unpredictable children!

I am delighted to take on the role of Governors and enjoy being a member of the Governing Body. I look forward to continuing to work with all members of the Sherdley community to help to provide the best whole school experience for the pupils of Sherdley.
