Sheron Hynard Vice Chair and Safeguarding governor 


I am currently a foundation and safeguarding governor. I have four children at St Joseph's, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 6. My eldest who also attended is at college.  


I work within a school setting as a  HLTA in year 3. I have gained experience in EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. I have insightful knowledge of how a school runs from a day to day basis.


I feel I will contribute many aspects to the Governors and my knowledge and skill set will be beneficial to help our St Joseph's Community. 

Anthony Holbourn Foundation Governor


Anthony spent much of his life teaching in two schools, one in Devon, the other in Enfield, retiring in 2011.  He became a leading pastoral figure in the latter as Head of Year 7, in which capacity he visited most of the feeder primary schools.  He has also been a member of three governing bodies, one of them as Chair.
