I am a resident of North Cadbury and former pupil of the School. I originally joined the Board as a representative of the Parish Council. Having retired from the Parish Council I consider my role more as a community Governor whereby I maintain and forge links with the local community whilst at the same time offering advice borne from my experience in the professional world of business.
I have worked in close liaison with the Head Teacher over all school matters and help to facilitate dialogue and the dissemination of information between the School, the Parish and local residents.
As a Chartered Surveyor and Chartered Town Planner I can assist the School with any property related issues, and am excited to be involved in the process of replacing the almost 50 year old 'temporary' classrooms. Furthermore, as a Partner in my own business, I have a good working knowledge of both accounts and business and can therefore contribute to the Business Committee.
Revd. Tristram Rae-Smith: Foundation Governor
I am Rector of the local church, St Michael’s North Cadbury. I am also a Foundation Governor of the School. As such I have a special responsibility to protect and promote the Christian ethos of the school, and ensure the wonderful relationship between church and school continues. I lead Collective Worship at the school most weeks and have been involved in establishing the school's FAITH to help children learn and understand some of our Christian Values.
