|Kate Lyon||Parent Governor||Appointed 30/06/2018|
|How are you connected with the Academy?||I am a parent of a year 8 child and my second child will join the school in 2019.
|How does you current or previous occupation support your work as a governor.||I have worked as a primary school teacher for 20 years and am passionate about education and every child's right to a great education. I have been a governor at a Plymouth primary school for 7 years and have supported them through Ofsted visits and joining a multi academy trust.
|Please provide some information on what drives you to be a governor at Lipson.||I believe in the child focused ethos at Lipson and want to support this so that it can continue in an increasingly difficult time for education. Lipson strives to keep the child at the centre of everything they do and considers the well being of their students as paramount. As a governor I hope to support( whilst constructively challenging) the school to do this.|
