Vanessa Tomlinson

Chair of Governors

vtomlinson@christchurch.academy

Having spent 30 years working in Primary schools and another 14 years in Teacher Training, I retired at the end of August 2020. My career has spanned the roles of Class Teacher, Headteacher, Ofsted Inspector, School Improvement Partner and PGCE and SDS Tutor and Lecturer at the Institute of Education, University College London. I therefore have a broad overview of how the education system works and evolves and hope to put this to good use as Chair of Governors at Christ Church.

Throughout my years I have been passionate about providing Primary school children with high quality and enjoyable education, to enable them to develop and flourish throughout their time in school and on into their adult life. I am looking forward to continuing my passion for education by supporting the Governing Body of Christ Church CE Primary and Nursery Academy.
