Sandi Buttrey, Business & Community Governor
Hello, my name is Sandi Buttrey and I am a co-opted member of All Saints Governing Body. I joined the Governing body in January 2019. I live locally and my son attended All Saints many years ago, and children of my friends and neighbours attend currently.
I have a background in social work and was the school safeguarding officer for East Sussex Children Services for two years working with schools across the county. This strengthened my interest in the role of schools in not only providing for a child’s education but also to safeguard and support children both in school and in the community. Since taking an early retirement I have continued to work with schools as an independent safeguarding consultant and trainer and I bring these knowledge and skills to my role as link governor for Safeguarding.
In the short time I have been governor at the school I have found staff to be child focussed and to actively welcome the involvement of parents with the school and also very importantly to be open to the ongoing development, support and scrutiny provided by the governing body.
