Parent Governor - Alex Tait

Alex Tait

I was elected as a parent governor to the governing body in 2014. I feel that the opportunity to be a part of the decision processes in how my children’s school is run is a real privilege and not just a right. I believe that Icknield is a fairly extraordinary environment and if I can play even the smallest part in helping it develop its potential, it will begin to balance what my children have so clearly got out of it.


My background is in education, in particular specializing in dyslexia. I am the SEND link governor and I hope I bring an expertise here, but also insights and perspectives on broader educational matters to the governing body.




The governing body is led well and provides good support and challenge to school leaders, particularly in working with the headteacher on his many plans for the further rapid improvement of the school. (Ofsted 2015)
