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.

 

Jamie Speake (Vice-Chair)

I have lived in Gravesend all of my life. I feel really passionate about making sure that all children have the opportunities to have happy, healthy and successful lives where they are truly fulfilled. My role as a Governor at Westcourt Primary School allows me to play a role in achieving this. I am a qualified Science teacher and taught in the West Midlands. I now work for an educational charity supporting trainee and newly qualified teachers to develop in to outstanding practitioners. I look forward to playing a role in the development of the school so that all children at Westcourt receive an inspirational education to allow them future success throughout their lives.
