Welcome: New Parent Governors
7 February 2022 (by Alice Choudhery (Alice))
We are pleased to welcome, and introduce to you, Priscilla Spence and Jessica Dixon as our two newly appointed Parent Governors.
Our first newly appointed Parent Governor:
“My name is Priscilla Spence. I moved to Birmingham 20 years ago from London to undertake my Postgraduate in Social Work. With a background in Social Work, I qualified over 18 years ago and have worked in areas of family support, safeguarding and care management. In recent years I have worked in the fostering services as a team manager providing support and overseeing social works who are supporting foster carers and children Looked After. Prior to my social work career, I worked in residential care settings and with an Examining Board as a coordinator for GCSE, A, levels and BTEC.
I am particularly interested in the Parent Governor role as working with others for the good of the child has always been an area, I have been passionate about. Hearing and sharing ideas as a Team Around a Child to offer the most effective support is invaluable, therefore being part of a board will enable this area further. I aim to bring insight based on professional experiences that will support the roles and discussions on the board ingoing forward. I do enjoy reading, music and some time to generally chill out where possible spending time with friends and family all of which are important to me.”
Our second newly appointed Parent Governor:
“My name is Jessica Dixon. As a parent, I am passionate about ensuring that every child has the opportunity to fulfil their potential no matter their social or economic background. To me means that the pupils of St George’s CE School are able to create memories, strong relationships and have a chance at an exceptional education; all underpinned by Christian values. I am a senior student midwife and therefore, my career revolves around advocacy for families. My current studies have enabled me to understand policy, law and evidence and my experience as an autonomic practitioner in the NHS has taught me decision making and risk management.
