Some information about us ...

David Canning - Chair of Governors

David has been a school governor since 2002 and was appointed to the Governing Body at Kings Ford Infant School in 2006; he has been Chair of Governors since 2009.  His responsibilities include numeracy, safeguarding, race relations and performance management of the Head Teacher.  David is a senior manager in the Civil Service based in Westminster but is married to a teacher and their three children are currently at university, and local secondary and primary schools.  A fan of outdoor sports, David is happiest on the end of a rope, climbing a mountain somewhere.

Anthea Stone - Vice-Chair, Co-Opted Governor

 I am 61 years old, a proud, loving mother of 2 daughters and 2 grandchildren. I have been working as a social worker for all of my adult life and am now semi-retired. I like being outdoors, am a very keen walker and I also play tennis with friends, alongside other interests.
 
The reason I have chosen to become a School Governor is that I feel very strongly indeed that all children should be offered the best possible schooling to help them develop their self confidence, their educational skills and their social skills in order for them to enjoy as full lives as possible now and in the future.
I plan as a Governor to contribute to King's Ford Infant School and Nursery offering these opportunities to all its pupils. As part of this plan I am also a volunteer listening to children reading. 

 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.
