Zoe Gallimore

 

Type of Governor:

Chair of Governors; Co-opted

Committees:

Resources; Children, Families and Community

I first joined Ellingham Primary School Governing body in 2014 as a parent governor and took the role of vice chair in 2015. At present I sit across all three sub committees and my areas of responsibility for the year 2015 – 2016 include; Closing the Gap, Boys Attainment and Maths as a core subject.

Before having two children, both of whom currently attend Ellingham, I worked in the retail sector where my responsibilities focussed around HR and training and development across varied roles.  I gave up work ten years ago to raise a family and I am pleased to be able to utilise my skills from past employment in a role that allows me to contribute towards the future of the school and our children’s education.
