Governor Stories 

Meet Maja 

What inspired you to become a governor?

I worked for 7 years as an occupational therapist at a specialist school. Since leaving that job and relocating, I knew I wanted to stay in touch with education in some capacity but I wasn’t at first sure how! 

I saw that the Turner group was looking for a governor with a background in special educational needs which caught my eye.

Did you feel welcomed and well supported? 

Everyone at the Trust and on the committee have really welcomed me with open arms. The induction process was straightforward and supporting. 

The meetings I’ve attended have been both enjoyable and encouraging.

How does the Trust support governors?

I was excited to be asked to step into the role of lead SEND governor and I was provided with online training, invited to meet with SEND staff and to a network of other lead SEND governors in the trust and SEND staff.

What is the most rewarding part of being a governor?

My passion is children’s mental health and well-being. I believe that children perform to the best of their ability when they’re happy, content and confident within the learning environment. Being involved in the understanding and supporting of children’s health and well-being in the curriculum is important to me.

Thank you Maja!
