Governor Profiles

The school Governing Body consists of Local Authority, Community, staff and Parent Governors.  Our Parent Governors are elected by parents and serve a term of four years.  Any vacancies that arise are filled by election as rapidly as possible to ensure that parents always have full representation on the Governing Body.

In compliance with EFA guidelines regarding the disclosure of Business interests, below is a table outlining Governors Pecuniary Interests: 

Joanne Fennelly - Headteacher

As Headteacher at Simon de Senlis, it is part of my job to be a Governor at the school.  The Governing body are here to support and challenge the school and make sure that we are doing all the things required by law, as well as everything we can to improve learning and experiences for children.  We are fortunate to have a strong and supportive Governing Body who have a range of skills and experience which bring value to our school.  They are very good at asking the right questions and are always challenging us to do better for our children.  I love being Headteacher at Simon de Senlis and am excited to lead a school with so many talented and hardworking staff and children.

Charlotte Rickards - Chair of Governors

I attended SdS as a pupil some 25 years ago, so it’s a real privilege to have joined the governing body since 2020, providing me with a platform to support and give back to the school. As chair of governors it’s my role to ensure that we, as a governing body, are supporting and providing constructive challenge to Joanne and the school to enable us all to support the schools mission. Building a community of responsible, determined, aspirational, healthy and happy learners who make a positive ‘dent in the universe’, is something I am deeply passionate about, even more so since I started on my own personal journey of raising my daughter.

I am a qualified HR Business Partner, specialising in organisational design, and spend a significant proportion of my working week supporting the business I work for to achieve their strategy and goals through the development and structure of their teams. In my spare time I love travelling, spending quality time with my family and friends, and walking our extremely energetic dog!
