Our Governors

Emma Harrington

I feel honoured to be part of the Kings Hill VIAT community and have loved to see it flourish over the last year in my time as a co-opted governor. As an Assistant Head, and English teacher at Invicta Grammar School, and having a husband working at one of the other VIAT primary schools, I am passionate and fully committed to supporting staff and parents to ensure that the students here receive the very best education possible.

Angela Keepax

Having been recently appointed as a governor, I am excited to join the team and I look forward to getting to know all the staff, parents and pupils at the school. My teaching background, as well as being a parent of two boys, allows me to have a wide, balanced perspective of the running of the school. I am passionate about giving children an enjoyable education whilst ensuring they fill their full potential, and it’s important that parents are assured that their child is happy and achieving.

John Owen

I am relatively new to the governing board having become a parent governor in June 2018 and my daughters are currently in Year 1. I'm a Partner in a firm of Chartered Surveyors based in London and specialise in the private commercial sector. I have adopted the role of "Parent Liaison" which I feel is an important connection between the Trust, teachers and parents and in tandem with the leadership team hope to improve communication and provide additional support where required.

Sheila Potipher

I am very new to VIAT Kings Hill primary school and took over as Chair to the Governing Body in May of this year.  I have previous experience having been a governor of a college for over 20 years, the last 7 being as Chair.  It has been an exciting few months which have seen many changes. It is good to be able to support such a keen and dedicated teaching staff and watch our children achieve their full potential.  I firmly believe that if children are enthused with a love of learning at primary school age they will have the firm foundations to lead them onwards towards their ultimate goals.

Louise Zilliox

I am Louise Zilliox.  My child has been at Valley Invicta Primary School at Kings Hill since the day it opened in 2015 and is now in Year 3.  I am passionate about all children being given the right support and opportunities to help them fulfil their potential.  Being a parent governor and volunteering at the school is a great way to contribute.  I am the lead governor for achievement of vulnerable pupils, which includes Special Educational Needs and disability (SEND), English as an additional language (EAL) and Pupil Premium.  I am also the lead governor for maths.
