My name is Charlene Griffiths and I have been a Governor at the Infant School since September 2008, firstly as the SEN Governor before becoming Chair of the Governing Body in 2011, with responsibility also for the EYFS since 2013. I have two boys, aged 12 and 9 and for the last 7 years I have been working as a Childminder. Prior to having a family, I worked in a London design studio for 8 years working on character illustrations for merchandise and packaging. I gained experience working with children in a London Primary School during 2000/2001. My role as a teaching assistant in Year 3, and later Year 6 took me into the classroom to support the students and teachers.
