    I was appointed Foundation Governor in 2009 and have seen both of my children go through the school and on to further education in that time. I am currently the Chair of Governors and enjoy working with my fellow governors to help shape the further development of St Joseph's.

  • Mrs Saskia Hallett

    Parent Governor

    I have recently joined as a Parent Governor in the Summer Term 2019. Following my degree in South East Asian Studies with Indonesian language at Hull University I qualified as an Early Years Teacher at Exeter University in 2005 and I have primarily taught in Foundation, Year 1 and 2 as well as leadership and management in a large International school in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. I have two boys at the school and I try my best to help and provide support when and where I can. I currently go in to support reading and help with forest school. I have spent a large part of my life in South East Asia, as have my two boys, and I have a passion for learning about world cultures, religions, diversity and nature. I’m in my element at the forest school sessions! I aim to be a bridge between the playground and the classroom, and to help you and your children feel happy and succeed in the school environment.

    Foundation Governor

    I was appointed as a Foundation Governor in March 2018. I was delighted to be asked to join the team of existing governors, especially as my two grown up children had been pupils at St. Joseph's. I am Deputy Safeguarding Governor and my link subject is Early Years. I enjoy coming into school to meet with the children and see their work. I am proud of our school and to be a governor and will always act in the best interest of all the children and staff at St. Joseph's.
