Damon Shaw - Parent Governor

Damon ShawWith two daughters, in Years 10 and 7, I am keen to commit to ensure the school provides the best for pupils at the school now and for the years to come.

I have an excellent understanding of the pressures facing the education sector as for the past 10 years I have worked to develop facilities and services at Leeds Trinity as it’s gone through the transformation from College to University, focused on ‘Students First’.  For example, I led on the development of the Sports Facilities and gym, ensuring these are open to local clubs and the community whilst also working with a number of key school and University partners in Leeds, West Yorkshire and Sweden.

As Parent Governor I take pride in the role to represent the Parent viewpoint, to challenge the management to ensure that the pupil is priority, and that any development is appropriate to the needs of Horsforth.
