My name is Rachel Gilroy and I have lived in Maidenbower for the past 15 years. I am married with three children, two of whom are at Maidenbower Infant School.
My professional career spans 20 years working in various Local Authority Children's Services.
As a Parent Governor I work as part of the Board of Governor's and the School to provide a parental viewpoint when decisions about school priorities are made.
As a Governor individuals have specific responsibilities, and my responsibility on the Board is around the safeguarding of children. To achieve this I work with the school to ensure that children's wellbeing remains centre stage and consistent across the school, and that the necessary safeguarding legal requirements and practices are complied with.
