Catherine Williams | Co-opted Governor
My name is Catherine Williams and I have been teaching in Haringey for 30 years. I am currently a teacher at the Vale School, Secondary Department in Tottenham. I have also taught as a Vale teacher at Belmont Juniors and I have been a Governor at the school for 17 years. As a member of the teaching profession, I have first-hand experience of supporting young people through the education system and so I believe I have the skills, knowledge and experience to support Belmont Juniors in my Governor role. My son attended Belmont Schools and completed his secondary education at a local Tottenham school.
Jasmine Jouhal | Staff Governor
Paul Bernard | Co-Opted Governor
I am a curriculum Deputy Head Teacher with 19 years experience in a number of north London secondary schools.
I am passionate about providing exceptional educational experiences for every child.
I believe that education is the key to providing every child with the opportunity to fulfil their ambitions and make positive contributions to society.
I am therefore looking for the opportunity to develop and challenge myself as a school governor as well as challenge school leaders to have the greatest impact on their children and their community.
Jules Collings-Baron | Parent Governor
Megan Royle-Jacob | Parent Governor
Maxine Murdoch | Parent Governor | Vice Chair
Born and bred in London, I have lived in Haringey for more than 10 years. I have two girls in year four. Prior to becoming a mother I worked as a merchandiser for the Arcadia group. Currently I work part time as a teaching assistant in a school in Tottenham. I see Belmont school as an essential part of the local community and on that basis decided to stand for the role of parent governor. I have enjoyed finding out more about the behind the scenes running of a school and the hard work and dedication of all staff that build towards the school's success.
