Meet The Governors

Simon Holmes: Co-Opted Governor

I started reading with children at a mainstream primary, and became interested in schools. Applied to BCC, and was offered this governorship. The schools sounded interesting as my professional work often brought me into contact on the “fringes” of society.

I am a member of The Student Welfare and Resources & Personnel Committees.  I am the lead Governor for Equality and Diversity.



Staff Governor: Kaye Palmer-Greene

I have had over 20 years teaching experience in primary and secondary predominantly in areas with recognised social deprivation and have relevant expertise in working with children with complex social and academic needs. I am currently the Headteacher at Bristol Gateway School and have led the school out of special measures to Good (April 2015). I have been the lead in setting up a new PRU provision and have gained valuable experience working throughout the County at leadership level advising and devising strategies to deal with pupils that are excluded from school.
