Catherine Rochelle (Chair of Governors, Co-opted)
I was appointed initially as a parent governor in March 2012 and have been Chair of Governors for the past two years. I am now a co-opted governor; I oversee the work of the full governing body and meet regularly with the head teacher to discuss school matters. We work together as a strong team with staff, pupils and parents with the joint aim of maintaining our happy school environment where children learn and develop to their full potential. I have three children who all attended West Bridgford Junior School and are now at secondary school or university. I have 23 years’ experience working as a solicitor in private practice, initially in all areas of litigation and now specialising in family law.
