Parent Governor representatives elected as of 1st May 2017

    Mr Jan Cameron (South): I’m an experienced project manager working at a leading university, delivering wide-ranging projects across departments. I am practiced in quality assurance and ensuring stakeholder engagement is in place and met. I am used to auditing projects independently, providing clear recommendations to directors and senior leaders. As a parent governor and deputy chair I lead on several school improvement initiatives that require me to be consultative with staff, parents and pupils. I am used to reviewing policies and ensuring they are fit for purpose and deliver value for money and wish to use my expertise to assist the committee

    Mr Andrew Charlwood (West): I would like to be elected as the Parent Governor Representative for the West area to serve on Hertfordshire County Councils Overview & Scrutiny Committee.  I am vice-chairman/parent governor at a school in Hemel Hempstead.  I am the Head of Governance at a neighbouring local authority and so fully understand the roles and responsibilities of a parent governor representative and how local authority governance, decision-making and overview & scrutiny works.  I am confident that I would be able to represent the views of parents and pupils on the committee in relation to education matters.

    Mrs Natalie Punter (East): I work in charity management and understand strategy, conflicting resource demands and prioritising the needs of service recipients.  I am governor at a school which is excelling at treating children as individuals with different needs, styles and paces of learning and in allowing children to be creative, active and inquisitive within a framework of high educational achievement. I would like to see good practice replicated.

    Elections for the North of the county will be run again in Autumn 2018.
