Governors


 

Our Governors are a diverse group of people ranging from staff and parents to professionals from industry. They all have one common interest; to support and develop Ravenswood School for the benefit of the students, parents and staff as well as the wider community.  The Governors meet regularly to discuss all aspects of school life and are always willing to hear the views of anyone interested in Ravenswood School.

Pam Pollard

Personal background: Several years as a governor in the Primary sector, in the 1980s. Ravenswood governor since 2007. Nailsea resident since 1996. Early retirement enables me time to devote to my governor role. I have work experience with local training providers, with the Constabulary Training School; I have also worked with people in recovery from drug and alcohol abuse.
My passion: I value what schools offer and I do my utmost to support the efforts that are made by young people today.
What I want to achieve for Ravenswood: Recognition as a valued School that offers the best that it can for all its pupils.
