Mr Paul Strange - Parent Governor

I spent over six years on the governing body of an Outstanding local school.  During that time, I made many visits, attended training, spent two years as Chair of the Resources Committee and took part in many committee and full governing body meetings.  I also took part in the school’s OFSTED inspection that reaffirmed the school as Outstanding. I am committed to excellence in education and access to quality teaching for students from all backgrounds and of all abilities. I am a former Beauchamps pupil who lives locally and whose eldest son is currently in year seven.  I have been very impressed by what I have seen in his first term and would like the opportunity to help continue the school’s excellent provision and of course help to develop and improve things where needed. I have worked in the third sector developing skills that include team and project management and managing large budgets. On a personal level I have experience of the needs of gifted and talented students and those with Special Educational Needs and with a wife who is a teacher at another school have a good understanding of the demands from a teaching perspective. I would work with the existing governing body to ensure Beauchamps is a safe, enriching environment that offers all students the best possible opportunities to achieve their full potential.
