Local Advisory Board
Louise has worked at The Wickford CofE School since 2006, first as a teacher and then as the Head Teacher.
Louise's aim has been to create a respectful, caring and secure place to learn where everyone will work happily together. Wickford Church of England School's staff, along with supportive parents and LAB members, contribute to the success of the school.
"We work together as one community with a common purpose – to ensure that our children are happy and successful, developing a lifelong love of learning."
Emma first became a parent Governor for Wickford C of E 12 years ago and also started to volunteer for the school in the same year helping with the Library and Holy Space with members of the Clergy.
Emma is an active member of St Catherine’s Church and is training to be a licensed Lay Minister.
In 2011 she became a foundation Governor which means she was appointed to Governing body by the local Church. For the Last five years she has had the role of Chair of the Local Advisory Board.
Emma has many roles in the school from Mid-day assistance to Spiritual Advisor and is always happy to answer any question the children might have about God or religion.

My passion is working with young children, making a difference, nurturing them and encouraging them to be the best that they can be!
As a member of the Local Advisory Board for The Wickford CofE School, my drive has come full circle and I am thrilled to offer my experience, history of the school and fresh ideas to a unique Board.
