Helen Flesher – Chair of Governors
I am currently Chair of Governors at Benton Park, I joined the Governing Body as a Parent Governor in 2008 when I had a son in school, I am now a Co-Opted Governor and recently started a new 4 year term. I have over 15 years’ experience in school governance and I am also Vice Chair at a local Bradford Primary school. I live and work locally and have during my employment in the public sector aquired a range of transferable skills that I bring to the role of Governor. Our role as Governors is to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and provide strategic direction acting as a “critical friend” to the school. We work together as a team alongside the Headteacher and are responsible for the educational performance of the school to deliver a good quality education for all our students. As a governor I enjoy the experience of continuing to learn as an adult and the involvement in nurturing our students’ pathways in the ever changing world of education.
