Mr Simon Pollard
Mrs Helen Knight
Chair, Board Appointed Governor 12/05/17
I have been a governor at Carclaze since 2017. I have 3 children, at Carclaze, Penrice and now one at Truro college. My background is that I have been a primary school teacher since 1997. I have taught all ages from 4-11 and I was a member of the senior leadership team at my last school. My life took a massive turn of events when I was diagnosed with a serious illness in 2015. I am now enjoying family time and voluntary work whilst I fully recover. I am still passionate about education and believe that my experience and expertise will play a valuable role in helping Carclaze on their continual desire for excellence and achievement.

Hi, I have been a governor for over two years at Carclaze School including a brief period as the Chair of Governors. My family commitments take me round the world and I am looking forward to a busy year ahead. I have a wealth of experience in education and my most recent role is as phonics assessor across the county. I am passionate about the teaching of phonics and hope that I can lend support and challenge to the school drawing from my own experiences.

Hi, I am a mother of two children aged 6 and 9. I am very passionate about teaching the next generation and love my job. I have been teaching for 13 years in each of the different year groups in various primary schools in Cornwall. For the past 5 years I have taught at Carclaze. During my time at Carclaze I have undertaken various roles such as Pupil Premium, Real Projects and Science Leads. I have undertaken and completed the National Professional Qualification for Middle leaders. Most recently I have completed the Diploma for Trauma Informed Schools practitioner and plan to implement that at Carclaze through my PSHE and values role. My career has been very exciting at Carclaze with many different opportunities made available to me. I hope as a teacher governor I will learn about different aspects of school life.
