Meet The Governors

Bramble Infant School and Nursery Governing Body 

The Governors of The Brambles Nursery and Goldsmith Infant School are drawn from a variety of backgrounds.

Please bear with us as we update the profiles of each of our Governors

I have been a Governor since my son was four and started at this school - he is almost 21. I hail from North London but have lived in a few places before settling in Southsea in 23 years ago. I work in Winchester for Hampshire County Council and have a 12 year old black Labrador.

I have been teaching in Portsmouth for 25 years and have been Deputy here at Bramble Infant School and Nursery since September 2014. I'm proud to be part of the continuing story of our friendly community school where active, exciting learning happens every day.

I have lived in Portsmouth all of my life. I have been working with children and young people since 1998 and I hold various other positions within the community. I’m an Ofsted ‘Outstanding childminder’ and the parent engagement officer for a disability charity. Both of my children attended Bramble nursery and Bramble Infant School.

I work for Portsmouth City Council as a Children’s Social Worker, and have previously been a teacher in a primary school in Portsmouth. I have a passion for ensuring that children achieve the very best they can, and I see my role as Governor as one to challenge and support the school on its journey. My son attended Bramble Infant School and loved school - I hope to help the school so that every child has the same positive experience.

Governor statement for Bramble Infant website
I started as a governor in 2005 when my oldest child was in Yr R. My other children also attended Bramble Infant school (or Goldsmith Infant as it used to be called then). They all loved the school!
I am originally from Switzerland but have lived in Southsea since 1995 & enjoy living by the sea. I work for the Ethnic Minority Achievement Service which is part of the Education department at Portsmouth City Council. I am passionate about all children's education but I have a particular interest in the provision for children whose first language isn't English.

I was appointed to the Governing Body in Summer 2017.
I first moved to Southsea to study at Portsmouth University, and although I moved away for a number of years, I have been back in Southsea for more than 10 years. I love living in this vibrant seaside town.
I have 2 children at Bramble Infant and Nursery Schools, and they really enjoy their time here. I hope that I can support and contribute to the activities of the Governing Body.

I have recently become school governor in March 2018. I have lived in Portsmouth all my life and I am a manager / staff trainer by profession. I became a school governor as I wanted to make a contribution to the community of Portsmouth.
