Why did you want to become a Governor at Oaklands School?

Maximising learning opportunities and educational experience for all children and young people with SEN or disability, has been at the heart of my professional life. Becoming a governor at Oaklands is an opportunity to continue making a small contribution to this end. Further, it is an opportunity for me to learn and develop skills in the area of governance and widen my perspective of schools.

Professional Background

I am an educational psychologist, now retired. Before my professional training (M.Sc 1981-82) I had been a primary school teacher for several years. I have worked as an E.P for the boroughs of Richmond and Ealing, and as an independent E.P. Part of my work included special schools, notably Clarendon and Strathmore schools in Richmond, and John Chilton school in Ealing.

What skills do you bring to the role?

My Career as an E.P has enabled me to gain good understanding of the stresses and difficulties teachers and parents face. Although I have learned the need for rigorous enquiry I am sympathetic, non-judgemental, work effectively as part of a team and am very supportive of the school. I am very much a 'people' person and much look forward to getting to know the school and it's staff well.

Nancy Beesley

Co-opted Governor & Chair of Premises and Health and Safety Committee

Date Appointed by Governing Body

10th November 2015

Term of Office expires

4thNovember 2023

Why did you want to become a Governor

I have worked as a Teaching Assistant at Oaklands School for 5 years and I love my job! I feel it is very important that the teaching support staff have a voice on the governing body as we work most closely with the students on a day to day basis and we can always offer a useful, informed and practical perspective on key issues. I also believe that support staff are the lynchpins of the school and it is important for them to know that their views are represented and valued.

What is your professional background

I first came to the school on an agency contract, having worked in several other schools in the area. At the time I was returning to work after a career break to raise my own two young children. I knew I wanted to work in education, but I wasn’t sure in what capacity. From the start Oaklands was the perfect fit for me, and I didn’t want to leave. Happily I was able to secure a permanent contract and I’ve been here ever since. When I left university I worked in the newsrooms of several local radio stations in the West Country before moving to London as a researcher for the BBC’s Disability Programmes Unit. Latterly I became an Assistant Director responsible for filming on location. My time in the media was very exciting, but I find my job now much more rewarding.

What skills do you bring to the role

I have taken advantage of training opportunities offered by the school. I am a manual handling trainer. Together with another colleague I’m responsible for all the student moving and handling plans within the school. We also deliver staff training throughout the school. I have completed a course for therapist assistants in speech and language and occupational therapy. I work with every class at Oaklands, but I have a particular interest in profound, multiple learning disabilities (PMLD).

Jack Talman 

Co-opted Governor 

Date Appointed by Governing Body

5th March 2019

Term of Office expires

4th March 2023

Why did you want to become a Governor at Oaklands School?

I visited the school and was so impressed by everything that everyone does here. The school is such an inspirational place with such great facilities and management that so clearly care about the welfare and education of the students in their care. I quickly felt that this was somewhere that I wanted to also devote my time to in order to do what I could to also contribute to the lives of these young people.

Professional Background

I have been a teacher since 2007 and have become a pastoral leader in the school where I now work. This means that I focus my time on the welfare and wellbeing of the students in my care. I have become a practising Mindfulness teacher and am the Head of PSHE and ESafety Officer in the school where I work.

What skills do you bring to the role?

I care passionately about the safety and welfare of the young people in my care. I am empathetic and sympathetic and always willing to listen and do whatever I can to help. I have a good understanding of PSHE and the issues facing young people today around areas such as online safety and mental health. I am keen to try to use the knowledge and skills that I have developed around these areas to help the students at Oaklands and look forward to learning more while a governor here.
