Name: Stephanie Boot
Type of Trustee: Staff Trustee (support)
Date first appointed: April 2020
Committees/Special responsibility: Teaching and Learning Committee.
Background (employment, experience etc): At the end of the summer term 2020, I will have been a Progress Assistant at Cox Green School for 3 years. Prior to that I was an exam invigilator at the school for 5 years. I have also worked for 16 years at Hewlett-Packard, initially in Logistics and then 5 years in the Workplace Services department concentrating on Occupational Health & Environmental Health and Safety for UK service centre employees.
Why I became a Trustee: I have 2 boys that have attended Cox Green School - one currently in Year 12 and one is now at university. Both thoroughly enjoyed their time academically and socially at the school. Since working as a Progress Assistant, I can see the amazing, dedicated work of the staff towards the students but also the challenges which are faced. I feel I am in an ideal position, working closely with teachers and students, to positively contribute to the Board of Trustees as a member of staff and a parent.
