Hi, I’m Mike Cowell, who has recently become a school governor for the 1st time. I’ve worked in various roles with children for over 20 years and have spent the last 10 years or so working in various safeguarding children capacities.
I’m at a dad of three, with my eldest in his final year at high school, my middle child has just started year 2 at Barlow Hall which he loves and is doing well, hopefully my youngest will start at the nursery next year.
We are quite a sports focused family and much of my time out of work is spent being a ‘dad taxi’ to various clubs and I still try to play sport myself. I also enjoy cooking and restoring classic cars and scooters.
If you think there are any issues the school governors should be considering, please feel free to have a chat with me.
