Meet the team

A message from the Acting Chair of Governors Simon Malony:

Following 16 years of primary school headship in two schools, I joined the Kent local authority as a school adviser.  I worked with the schools in the Canterbury District and then became the senior adviser for primary schools in Gravesend and Dartford.  I was an Ofsted inspector for five years in the mid noughties. I finished my twelve years with the Kent LA working with Thanet and Dover schools. For the past six years I have been working as an adviser with Aquila and I am currently the link adviser to four Aquila schools. I have recently worked on the Governing bodies of St Nicholas Primary school in New Romney and Charing Primary school.

Heather Wilson:

I have been a school governor since November 2019 initially for Kingsnorth and Brenzett schools. In September 2021 I chose to move across to Brenzett and was excited to be asked to be your safeguarding governor. I have 35 years of nursing experience the last 17 years supporting children and their families in the community. I have a true passion for working with young people and their families to ensure they reach their full potential and was so excited to assume the responsibility of early years governor and I will do my best to support Ms Barnden and the teaching staff in future.
