Hi, I’m Maxine Dennis and I became a Parent Governor at Ellistown Primary in 2018 when my son was in Year 1. I became Chair of governors in October 2020.
I’m very much enjoying the experience and really proud to part of the team driving Ellistown Community Primary School forward. I had no experience of education prior to becoming a Parent Governor but the school and the governor development service really helped me to settle in and make sense of everything!
It’s been really interesting learning about how the school functions and understanding the structure within which it sits. As well as sitting on the full governing board, I’m also the Governor responsible for safeguarding and SEND and sit on the Finance and Personnel sub-committee.
In my other life, I am a Project Officer within NHS England, currently working on cancer transformation projects. Prior to this, I worked within the community and voluntary sector on community health and wellbeing programmes.
