Dr Martin Saunders

I have served as a governor since 2010 and chair of governors since 2014. Originally I stood as a parent governor when my son was in year 2. I also now have two younger children making their way up the school. 

I am a teacher at a local primary school but have a background in business, education, science and technology. This broad and varied background helps me to keep the bigger picture and hopefully contribute to the wider view of the school. I also co-founded an education technology company called Spelling Shed, which helps children all around the world learn to spell.

As chair of governors I am responsible for running the governing body, am safeguarding governor (also responsible for monitoring Prevent, bullying and looked after children), sit on the finance and personnel committee and on the head teacher performance committee.
