A message from Chris Watts Community Governor

I am a Community Governor, in my second term of office and am currently the designated Safeguarding Governor. As a local businessman and Rotarian I have been involved with the school since 1999 when my son entered year 4. I joined the Friends of Bracken Leas and served as secretary for a couple of years. My close relationship with the school continued as my wife taught at the school for a number of years, before leaving to take up a deputy headship in Northampton.
