Julie Batten

Peter Thorn

Name: Julie Batten

Type of governor: Parent Governor.

Date first appointed: October 2013

Committees/Special responsibility: People and External Relations, member of the Trust Board.

Background (employment, experience etc): I have run my own business for Bookkeeping and IT Training for the last 30 years.

Why became a governor: I felt that it was important for parents to have a voice on the governing body with concerns and ideas, and that parents should be involved in helping the school make the decisions that would affect the students welfare and learning. Being a parent governor, I could also bring knowledge from the business world that might be of use.
