Thank you for looking at the governors’ website information. You may be reading this information as a parent considering our school for your child and, on behalf of all governors, I sincerely hope that you choose Cottage Grove Primary School. Our school is proud to be judged by Ofsted as a good school and governors know that everyone who is connected with Cottage Grove works hard to ensure that it improves continuously. If you are already a parent and would like to know more about what we do and why schools have governors, I have given a brief overview of our work and responsibilities below. I hope you find this useful and I look forward to meeting you soon.
Chair of Governors
Who Are We?
I am a Parent Governor and my daughter is in Year 3 at Cottage Grove. We live a short walk from the School and have been part of the local community for 12 years.
I am Cottage Grove parent and Portsmouth resident for over a decade after moving to Portsmouth to gain my BA Honours Degree in Creative & Performing Arts at Portsmouth University.
I have been working at Cottage Grove as a class teacher for 9 years and currently lead Modern Foreign Languages across Key Stage 2. During this time I have been fortunate to be part of an inspiring school community that demonstrates excellent commitment and dedication throughout. As staff governor, I hope to help maintain and develop education at Cottage Grove for the future generations of pupils. In my spare time I enjoy pottering in my garden and enjoying country walks with my dog.
