Helen Gooch

I was elected as a parent governor in 2014 and re-elected in 2018. At that time I had 2 children attending Sherwood Primary School one of whom has successfully moved up to High School. I work, part time, as a Physiotherapist for the NHS and bring from this role problem solving, leadership and team working skills. 

I have watched my children and their peers thrive at Sherwood. I am keen to ensure that Sherwood continues to provide all its children with the opportunity to reach their full potential and develop a lifelong love of learning and exploring. 

As a governing body we also need to learn and develop and I have a role as the Link Governor for Governor Training. I am a member of the Staffing Committee and Chair the Standards and Curriculum Committee. I have a particular interest in SEND and as the SEND governor meet regularly with the SENDCo and leadership team to support them to evaluate and develop this aspect of school provision. I am also the nominated governor for Humanities. I became Vice Chair of the Governing Body in Autumn 2018.
