Hi my name is Sarah Davis. I am married with three children. Our youngest daughter was a pupil at Penponds and I now have two granddaughters at the School. I became a co-opted governor in 2016. My main area of responsibility is Literacy. I have a passion for books and reading. I have a BSc hons degree in Combined Social Science. I have worked as an aim higher ambassador for Plymouth University and Cornwall College. I have also worked as a Youth worker for Cornwall Council taking a youth bus to rural villages and a heritage camp with Cornish and Breton teenagers. I was also part of a pilot scheme e-mentoring year 9 pupils. I am passionate about education and equal opportunities for all children.
I live in Penponds and have two children at the school. All of my children have attanded Penponds School. I am a partnerships manager at the University of Plymouth, managing degree programmes delivered in Cornwall, London and Singapore. I was originally a business studies teacher before moving to the University of Plymouth to be the leader of Further and Secondary Education teacher training programmes.
I am Olive Stevens and I am a Community Governor. I have been a school governor for more than 20 years. My connection with this school began in 2014 when I was Rector of Penponds Church and that connection has continued in my retirement.
My Governor responsibility is SMSC and that stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and my hope is that I would help to ensure the children have opportunities to explore their own spirituality, beliefs and values and learn something of world religions and faith.
Originally from Hampshire I moved to Cornwall after graduating from the University of Plymouth and I have lived in Penponds since 2012. I have been a governor and a director of the Rainbow MAT since 2013.
My youngest daughter is currently a pupil at Penponds and my eldest daughter was a pupil before moving on to Nexus at the end of Year 6 in summer 2020.
I support Mr Harvey as his Deputy Chair and have an interest in all parts of the school but am primarily focussed on PE and Sports Premium Funding.
Away from school I am the Commercial Director for the Tregothnan Estate near Truro and am a director for the recently formed Penponds Community Interest Company.
