Yvonne Mobbs-Vice Chair-Local Authority Governor
I am mum of two former Bonneygrove pupils- both of my children now attend St Mary's High school in Cheshunt.
I work full time as a dispenser for Boots the chemist in Goffs Oak, and have been there for 8 years. Along side my full time job, I am a Broxbourne Borough Councillor.
In the 6 years as Borough Councillor I have held different roles, I was the deputy cabinet member for housing and community for 3 years, I am a trustee for the local alms houses in Cheshunt, I am one of the mental health champions for the borough and to date I am the vice chair of the scrutiny committee. I really do enjoy giving back to my local community.
Jodie Klein-Parent Governor
I have one daughter who is in Year 2.
I have worked in education for over 20 years as a teacher in both special needs and a mainstream setting with children aged 7-11. In my last teaching post, I worked in a large 5 form entry school in Edmonton where I was Science co-ordinator and Deputy year leader as well as a class teacher.
Since having my daughter, I haven’t returned to full time work. Currently I am volunteering one day a week leading arts and crafts activities at a day centre in Cheshunt working with clients who are elderly and / or have dementia. I find this very rewarding and enjoy giving back.
I am passionate about nature and wildlife, enjoy walking and being outdoors.
Alice McCormack– Associate Governor
Vanessa Brennan - Parent Governor
I have been a parent governor since July 2018 and enjoy the challenges and rewards that come with the role. I have a son in Year 2 who keeps me on my toes and I work part time for London Borough of Redbridge. I have experience in working with children and young people up to the age of 18 in a range of settings including play schemes, secondary schools and pupil referral units. In my spare time I like to keep myself busy by going on long walks, going to the theatre and losing myself in a good audiobook.
Alex Wilson is an Assistant Headteacher and Maths Leader at a large local primary school with fifteen years of teaching experience. This keeps her busy most of her time, but any spare moments are spent with her family, enjoying London and visiting the theatre.
