Governors

 

The Role of the Governing Body

The role of the Governing Body is to support the school in providing the best possible education for our pupils. The Governing Body is a corporate entity and acts as a group. The strength of the Governing Body lies in the talents of its members, and their ability to work together as a team. Governors are elected or appointed by different groups including parents, teachers, LEA, and the Diocese.

Please find attached the New Governors' Handbook replacing the Guide to the Law that has been uploaded on DfE website today. It can be accessed via the following link.

GOVERNOR PROFILES

MARK BUTCHER

My name is Mark Butcher and I am the current Chair of Governors at St Bedes.  I am married with 3 daughters, one is at University; another one at Brentwood Ursuline and the third one is in Year 3 at St Bedes.  I am a catechist responsible for Children’s Liturgy and The Holy Communion Programme at St Cedds, our family parish.  I work for a Chartered Surveyors as a Director within the Property Management Accounting Team and am responsible for managing over 15 members of staff in London and others nationally.  I have always lived locally and attended St Aidan’s Primary School and then The Palmer Catholic Academy.

Why am I good for St Bedes? Well, I am a highly motivated individual that strives for excellence in everything and embraces new challenges with enthusiasm.  I am loyal and dedicated and am able to empathise with people to ensure positive outcomes are received, whilst keeping focused on the overall objectives of the school.  I am a strong leader whilst being an active team player.  I believe in learning something new every day therefore I am always looking for new skills that can improve mine and add value to my role as Chair.  I want what is best for St Bedes and all the Children that attend St Bedes.  I thoroughly enjoy my role at St Bedes and look forward to working with the team over the next few years to make St Bedes the best it can be.

EREMINA AGBEDO

I am a Parent Governor and I have two daughters here at St Bedes.  I am passionate about the welfare of all children and ensuring that everyone has the very best opportunities.  My professional background is in counselling and parent support, having worked for charities and children’s centres both at the strategic level and front line.  I bring this experience and understanding to my role as Parnet Governor and enjoy working hard with the other Governors to make St Bedes grow from strength to strength.

MITUS CASTILLO

I am currently a Foundation Governor and have been in post since November 2018.  I am married with 2 children – Micah, currently a Year 4 at St Bedes and Kimi, currently a Year 11 at Ilford County (who also went to St Bedes for his primary education).  I have been working in the further education sector for the past 12 years, looking after the Personal Development and Welfare Programmes for students at New City College – Redbridge and Epping Forest Campuses.  In my role, I work with various individuals and organisations to support young people with their personal and professional development as well as their wellbeing.  With my background and experience, I look forward to working with the staff and governors to ensure that we continue to deliver high standards of teaching and learning and that the children are equipped with the skills and values they need in order for them to grow into successful adults.

GRZEGROZ MILOS

I became part of the Chadwell Heath community when I moved in with my family in 2011.  I became involved with St Bede’s, when my son, Jasiu, started to attend the school’s nursery.  Jasiu is now enjoying his sixth year at the school, attending year 4.
I am a computer programmer, working on server applications and programming languages at Apple.  I draw from my industrial and academic experience, the latter culimating with a PhD degree from Cambridge University. 
In my spare time I enjoy soldering, woodwork and cooking.
