Mr Edward Carline
Individual Governor Profile
Type of Governor: Parent Governor
Reasons for becoming a Governor: I am honoured to represent parents on the governing board and be proactive in working with all parents to address any development opportunities. I have a child who has just joined the school and want to support all children’s learning journeys throughout the school and increase the opportunities which are offered. To achieve this I would ensure that children are at the heart of all decisions made by the school and support parents in ensuring that they have the opportunity to communicate clearly with leadership and the school staff. I fundamentally believe that schools should be influenced by context and engage with the community it serves.

Background Information: Across a 14 year teaching career I have developed strong leadership skills and have lead both departmental and school self-evaluation. I have experience of undertaking observations, work scrutiny and learning walks at department, faculty and whole school level within a secondary and primary setting. I shared my skills of teaching pedagogy and leadership with other teachers through CPD on a regular basis. I have a working knowledge of current issues in education and the changing landscape of accountability and board knowledge of curriculum design and content, from both my previous roles and my current role as pathway leader for PGCE physical education at the University of Wolverhampton.
