Cathy Harris : Parent Governor

I joined the board of Governors in 2018 and my son has attended The Redway School for 5 years.  During this time, he has made huge progress and enjoys every minute of his time spent in school.  Thanks to all the amazing staff in school he has learned many new skills and gained an enormous amount of confidence.  With my son I have gained a wide knowledge of tube feeding, oral aversion and breathing difficulties and have experience in dealing with hearing impairment, sensory and mobility issues.

As a new member of the board I aim to contribute to and support the school in achieving its goals on meeting the needs of all our children.  I am passionate about our children’s education and will always fight to ensure they get the best possible support to reach their potential, gain confidence and be happy.

I work a few hours at the weekend in a retirement village and have a good understanding of the safeguarding of the vulnerable.  In any spare time I may have, I enjoy sewing, gardening and swimming.
