Nikki lives near Bridport with her husband, two children and several chickens and spent four years as Chair of Governors at her children’s primary school culminating in an ‘Outstanding’ SIAMS (church school) grading and a highly commended ‘Good’ Ofsted grading. Report excerpt: “[Governors] are closely involved with the school because they are highly committed and passionate about their role. …Governance has continued to strengthen since the last inspection. Consequently, governors are increasingly adept at using different sources of information to hold [the school] to account.” Nikki also until recently held the position of Secretary of Beaminster Cricket Club.
