A bit about me

I’ve lived in Hinckley for 3 years with my husband Paul and Smudge the cat.

 

I am a Chartered Accountant working at Hinckley and Rugby Building Society so nice and close for attending meetings!

 

I have a few other hobbies – I sing in St Mary’s Gospel Choir in Hinckley and I’m local treasurer with nationwide community group called Ladies Circle.

 

I became a governor because I wanted to be able to use my finance skills in the community and having had some very inspirational teachers support me over the years I know how important education is so couldn’t think of a better way to volunteer my time.

One thing I love about the school

How friendly everyone is and how all the lovely outdoor space has been developed.

 

 

 

Name

Elizabeth Ashford

Position

Parent Governor

Appointed

February 2018

Main skills

My background is law so my main skills are dispute resolution, prioritising, managing expectations and negotiating.

 

Key Governor responsibilitie

SMSC

A bit about me

I was a litigation lawyer before having children and enjoyed a demanding but varied career.  I now work part time as a legal assistant which allows me to focus on my family while my children are young.  I have two children both of whom attend St Margaret’s.  In my spare time I enjoy running.

 

I love going into school and meeting the children, the work they produce is impressive and much more interesting than I remember my education being!

 

As I work part time I am looking forward to an active role as Governor and am particularly interested in the children’s well-being and developing traits such as resilience, respect and kindness.

 

One thing I love about the school

The children are amazing, very well behaved and polite but the thing I love most about the school is that both staff and volunteers at St Margaret’s are really invested in the children’s future – it’s not just about education but also preparation for the future and teaching the skills needed to succeed in whatever they choose to do.

 

Foundation governors: As well as being appointed for their relevant skills and experience, as a church school our foundation governors represent the church and must be approved through St Margaret’s Church Council. Just over half our governors need to be foundation governors and in addition to their other responsibilities these governors have specific responsibility for ensuring the Christian ethos and nature of the school is upheld and developed.
