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, both of whom hasve 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 am a member of the Staffing Committee and 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 Equality. I became Vice Chair of the Governing Body in Autumn 2018 and Chair of the Governing Body in Autumn 2019.

I am proud to be part of the amazing community that is Sherwood Primary School and I have watched my children and their peers grow and thrive during their time here. As Chair of the Governing Body, I will continue to support the head teacher, governing body and school community 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.
