Rachel Ayres – Co-opted Governor
I am a new Governor, having started here at King’s Ford Infant School and Nursery in March 2017. I became a Governor because I believe passionately that all children should be able to access an outstanding education, so that as many opportunities as possible are open to them in the future and they can make choices about the direction they take.
I am a mum of one, and I work as a Clinical Psychologist within Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust.
I do not have any business or financial interests.
