Rosie Bayliss (Chair)

I have 3 children, all of whom went to Westcourt Primary for most of their primary education.  I have been a teacher in primary education for sixteen years and so have a good knowledge of the education system. I have now been a governor for several years and am one of our parent governors.  As I now only work part time I feel I have the opportunity and time to be a critical friend and support the excellent work of the head teacher and staff at Westcourt.
