As a Community governor and a non parent Adrian hopes to be able to contribute to governance at Charborough road from a different standpoint.

Adrian and his wife Debbie have supported Friends of School with their fundraising for the last four years and having seen what a fantastic school family there was at Charborough road he wanted to become more involved. A focus on voluntary sector Health and Safety challenges throughout his career means has led Adrian to take on the role of Health and Safety governor at Charborough road.
I have a daughter who is currently in Year 1 and have had a link with Charborough Road for the past 12 years. I am currently an Assistant Head Teacher at Filton Avenue Primary School and was working with Olympus until last July.
I started my teacher careers 10 years ago and my first appointment was at Charborough Road. I have some fantastic memories of my time there and it is a pleasure to return and still see children that I have previously taught. It is a school that is really part of the community.
I have been in education for many years, have worked within the Olympus family of schools in that capacity. I hope to bring this knowledge and experience to the role of a governor at Charborough Road.
