Community Governor - Kate Bodle

Kate Bodle

Kate Bodle 

I am a passionate believer in quality education which is inclusive for all. As a teacher and SEND specialist with a particular interest in dyslexia, I have worked in a wide variety of primary school settings and in training staff to ensure that classrooms are inclusive with high expectations set for all children no matter where their starting point. I also have a keen interest in well-being and mental health in young people and the challenges they face in an uncertain and changing world. 

I strongly believe that a school is a community of parents, staff, governors and pupils and that it can be a strong and vibrant place to work and study in. I also value all areas of the curriculum and extra-curricular experiences that a school offers to ensure children are well rounded and prepared for the world when they leave. 

We chose Icknield for our own children as the ethos was exactly what we were looking for in terms of inclusivity, character building with high expectations of academics and behaviour and it hasn't disappointed. I really value the opportunity to be a Governor to help support and challenge the staff so that it continues to grow and develop further.
