Joanne Wakefield

Founding Governor

I am a Founding Governor of Sandymoor School. I currently Chair the Communications sub-committee and sit on the Education & IT subcommittees. I am both very proud and very passionate about Sandymoor School.

I have worked in the Telecommunications industry for the last 18 years as an Engineer & Technical Leader. I have spent time not only managing projects and leading teams but also writing Best Practice policies. Since having my 2 children I also spent 5 years as Chair/Business Manager of a local pre-school during which time I wrote all the requisite policies and procedures using industry best-practice models of excellence and liaison with both the local council and Ofsted. Also responsible for the accounts which included setting budgets, salaries and staff recruitment. With HNC’s in both Business & Finance and Telecommunications, I am both organised and focused with the technical competence to assist in the development of the school.

I have lived in Sandymoor for 17 years with my husband and our 2 children. I have always played an active role in the community and helped to set up the Sandymoor Parish Council in the role as clerk again managing accounts and writing polices.
