Name: Sarah Lee
Type of governor: Acting Chair/Community Governor
Why you wanted to become a governor: My daughter attends All Hallows and we have lived in the community for the last seven and a half years. I believe education is vitally important in securing the best possible life chances and I wanted to play my part in ensuring that the youngsters of Gedling attend an outstanding school which enables them to achieve their full potential. I have worked in education all my life and felt I had something useful to offer the school. As a parent, an ex-teacher and a local resident, I felt that my different “hats” would make me the type of governor who would have a well-rounded sense of all our stakeholder perspectives, and that therefore I would be able to effectively support and challenge the school to aspire to be the best it possibly can.

Fun bits– if you had a super power what would it be and why?
To never need sleep! As a single parent working full time and also trying to establish my own business there are never enough hours in the day! I am generally quite energetic and love to be busy- but the ability to go without sleep would be perfection! I might even be able to keep up with my daughter’s energy levels then too!
