Governor - Mr James Pidcock
I have been a Governor for over three years, one of which has been served at Sudell. As a qualified teacher, I have worked across a range of settings, including; Primary, Secondary, Pupil Referral Unit and, latterly, an outstanding Generic Learning Difficulty Special School. I have been a school leader for almost 5 years, holding a variety of Senior Leadership responsibilities including; Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND), Pupil Premium, Safeguarding, Teaching and Learning, Behaviour and Curriculum. I have completed the National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership and I am a National Pupil Premium Reviewer. I am currently the link Governor for Children with SEND and Pupil Premium and I believe whole heartedly that every child, especially the most vulnerable, deserves a champion.

Whilst currently working in the NHS i am kept up to date with all aspects of safeguarding and many other education and training.
My desire to be part of Sudell Governing Body derives from a genuine interest in school improvement at all levels and a deep rooted belief in the importance of education for all. I hope that some of my skills will be useful to support the staff and governors as they continue to develop what is already a good school into one that can be outstanding in many ways.
