St Albans School staff member Governor at Crowlands Schoo, Romford and Newtons Schoo. Rainham (The Growing Together Foundation)
Mr Gary Walker, Head of Sixth Form at St Albans School, sits on the Curriculum Committee and is the link Governor for Safeguarding.
Gary uses his experience of teaching History for many years within secondary schools, to provide guidance and support to Crowlands School to help them deliver an effective curriculum. He utilises the insight he has gained through his involvement in pastoral work as a Head of Sixth Form, in his role as Link Governor for Safeguarding.
Gary approached Crowlands, which is his old School, to offer his assistance. They were pleased to welcome him onto their Governing body. This School has since become part of the Growing Together Federation with Newtons School.
St Albans School allows Gary leave of absence in order to allow him to fulfil his role as a Governor.
Gary attends two meetings per term at Crowlands; one Full Board meeting and one for the Curriculum Committee. He also makes additional visits linked to his safeguarding role.
