Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Alison Foster

I am in my second term as a parent governor.

As a qualified Chartered Accountant, working in the not for profit sector, I support the school in the production of the annual budget, seeing first hand the increased financial pressures faced by the school and I work closely with the head teacher, chair of finance committee and business manager to address these.

I have a strong belief that all children at the school should reach their full potential and aim to ensure that the governance of the school supports this ethos.  As a former Director of Corporate Services - including a remit for Human Resources (HR), i work with the school on a number of HR issues,  This has included the recruitment of a number of great teachers and TAs to support children across the school, and I feel my knowledge of HR is a continued asset to support this area.

Since 2015 I have been the Chair of Governors, a role which I relish.  I am able to provide governance support to the Head Teacher as well as chair the Full Governing Body supported by great Parent, Community and Local Authority Governors.
