Dafydd Cherry | The Dearne ALC

Why I became a governor at The Dearne ALC:

Students and their families in this community deserve a school that delivers the best education to ensure the children have the same life chances as children from any community across the country. On a day to day basis I ensure this is what I deliver as a member of staff at The Dearne ALC, becoming a governor allowed me to challenge the school and ensure the students of this community are being supported in building strong foundations for both their careers and later life.    

The skills and experience I bring are: 

Prior to working at the Dearne ALC I was fortunate enough to work for the reintegration service at South Liverpool PRU, which gave me and insight into pastoral work within the educational setting. Over the last ten years I have established myself within the school as a key leader within the pastoral team in school, which allows me now to confidently challenge staff around all areas of school as a governor but in particular with a specialist focus on the personal development, behaviour and welfare of our students. 

My hopes for the Dearne ALC are: 

I am very passionate about the school and its community and I am eager to see the school succeed. As a governor and member of staff of the Dearne ALC I believe the school is being driven in the right direction and I will be honoured and proud to say I played a key role in the journey when we are judged an outstanding school by Ofsted.
