My name is Nerys Blower and I am a parent governor. I am vice-chair of Curriculum and Personnel and I am also link governor for a number of areas including DT, Science and PSHC.
I moved into Winscombe nearly 7 years ago with my family and have two children at Winscombe, in Y2 and Y4. I work as a teacher in an all-through 3 - 16 school in South Bristol and I want to use my educational experience to support the Federation in its aim to provide outstanding education. When I saw that there was a vacancy for a governor in the Federation, I thought it was a fantastic opportunity to get involved with life at the school. I also loved the idea that Sandford and Winscombe had decided that collaboration in a Federation would best serve the children and the wider community.
Being a governor is immensely rewarding and I have really enjoyed meeting parents, staff and children at all the various school events, such as performances and parent evenings. I have many interests - I love cooking and am usually found on the catering stalls at PTFA events!
