School Standards Board (SSB)

Our Schools Standards Board (SSB), meets once per half term. The SSB provides the local governance function for our schools which fits within the overall governance structure of GLF Schools. Further information about governance at GLF Schools can be found here.

Declaration of Business Interests and Attendance at Meetings

 

The three core functions of governance are:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management, including well-being, of staff
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

It is therefore important that our SSB comprises the right people with the right skills to make appropriate and informed decisions for a school, taking into account the views of children and students, staff, parents and the local community.

I have been connected with Glyn School since 2011 when I became a Parent Governor. I subsequently joined the GLF Trust Board and have been a Trustee since 2012. I am passionate about education and believe that every child is entitled to excellent education, as it has such a huge impact on their future life chances; I want to play a role to help make this happen.  My background is as an HR Director within the private sector, but a few years ago I set up my own HR consulting business.

Paul Carpenter

Paul Carpenter

I have been involved with Glyn School for the past 20+ years.  All three of my children attended Glyn School, including my daughter in the Sixth Form.  I was a Glyn Governor for 13 years and a Trustee of GLF Schools until August 2019. 

I live in Epsom and I am a Scout leader with 7th Epsom Scouts.  My day job is as a solicitor working for the Magistrates’ Courts in Surrey where I have a responsibility for the Youth Courts. I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to fulfil their full potential and, through education and learning skills, they can improve their life chances.

Gary Bixley

Gary Bixley

Gary began his working career in the automotive industry as an apprentice, graduating from Guildford College in 1983.  Throughout his career, Gary gained promotions and career advancement through a determined and focused path, developing leadership, management and business acumen experiences and skills, and extensive senior management and director experience through employed, self-employed and consultancy status roles, engaging with stakeholders at all levels to gain a deep understanding of change requirements.

Pascal van Loon

I am a Chartered Chemical Engineer working in business development for an industrial gases company in Surrey.  As STEM Ambassador (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), I have visited many local schools to provide science demonstrations and attend career fairs. I mentor graduates in our company, as well as A Level students for the Social Mobility Foundation. Since 2015, I have been a Governor at a local Primary school, and I am using this experience as a Parent Governor at Glyn School. From September 2021, both my sons will be attending Glyn School, so I will be connected to the school for quite a few years to come.

Suresh Shan

Suresh Shan

I am the Chief Finance Officer for a Multi Academy Trust and have many years’ experience working within both the Academies and Maintained sectors.  In my current role, I am working across Key Stages 1-5 and am responsible for leading and directing the Financial Strategy, Budget Management and Audit and Risk Management.

Schools continue to face challenging times, and I am delighted to support the staff at Glyn School so that they can continue to deliver effective Learning and Teaching to all pupils and students.
