Dr Janet Roberts
I was appointed a Foundation Governor in 1984 when our daughter was 4 years old and about to join the school. Both our children have attended Treales School. I have been Chair of Governors for the last 8 years and have been privileged to lead a dedicated and enthusiastic team.
Being a Church School, the Foundation Governors are appointed by the Treales Church Council (PCC), not only to work for the good of the School but also to maintain the close links between the Church and the School. As a Reader in the Church I have been able to lead the children’s worship on Thursdays and Treales Praise which is both satisfying and enjoyable and through this I get to know the children.
Over the years we have attracted some outstanding teachers and staff. They have been dedicated to the School, showing a high standard of teaching whilst maintaining the Christian caring ethos. This allows every child to reach his or her full potential in every area of life and gives a confidence to go into the future, which I believe is so important.
I believe the School is vital to church and community. I am committed to working with Mrs Pickervance - the new Chair of Governors, the other governors, the Head teacher and staff so that the School will thrive for a long time to come.
