Members of  the School Governing Body

  Chair of Governors
  Hubert Enright  (F) 
  c/o Gallions Mount Primary School

I became a Parent Governor in September 1999, my son Mathew was then a pupil at Galleons Mount.  After my four year term was up I wanted to stay and contribute to the   school. I was elected as a Co-opted Governor and later a Community Governor. I was elected Chair at the Autumn 2008 Governing Body Meeting. I take a keen interest in the education of our pupils. I attend all sub committee meetings and I have made regular class monitoring visits to the school as well as sitting in on school council meetings where the pupils voice there opinions in a very mature and sensible fashion. I also listen to what the pupils say in the play ground which has always been positive. I have accompanied classes on school trips to museums and their  school journeys to Wrotham and Swanage. I feel very proud to be a part of Gallions Mount and I hope to see it become an outstanding school.

Parent Governors 

 

 Modupe Peters

 I have been a parent governor at Gallions mount school since 2013. I have 2 children in the school and I sit in the finance committee. This is my  first time as a parent governor. I decided to get involved so I could learn more about how the school is managed as a whole. It has been an  interesting few years and I now have a deeper understanding and appreciation of the great effort and work put in by all teaching staff to ensure  the smooth running of the school on a daily basis. My background is in Nutrition and dietetics so learning about the school curriculum and  finance has been quite interesting.
