Community Governor - Matt Aspinall

Although I am a parent of children in the school I was co-opted as an associate Governor in 2014, having expressed an interest in helping ICC in whatever capacity I could.  I am a firm believer that a child’s education can be greatly enhanced by the positive involvement of his or her parents, whether that be direct involvement with the school, and/or in supporting their studies at home.

As a military officer I hope I bring a slightly different viewpoint and skills to the governing body, including an understanding and line of communication for the military children in our community.  Perhaps unsurprisingly, I have initially been involved in the performance and disciplinary aspects of the school, something which has been hugely rewarding when seeing the efforts that ICC makes for all of its students.

 


 

 
 

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)
