Barnes Farm Infant School

Building Futures, Inspiring Success

Valerie Bellamy

I am a local authority Governor and have been for a number of years.

When my children were young I was an Arts and Crafts teacher and a Gymnastic coach, so have always been involved in schools. I later moved on to become a stock control manager for a large sports company.

Now I have grandchildren, which rekindled my interest in education, hence my application to become a governor. I was allocated to Barnes Farm Infants and over the years have grown to know the school very well. My husband was a locum pharmacist in the village so that also helped to expand my knowledge of the community.

I am currently Chair of Personnel, and Vice Chair of Curriculum. I am also the training Link Governor. All governors are continually updating their training to ensure they are delivering the best possible support to the school, its staff and its pupils.
