Mrs Rebecca Carr

Vice Chair

I am a Charted Accountant with 14 years' experience at a global accountancy firm, specialising in financial audit, and now work for the industry regulator. I have been a governor since 2017 when I moved to the area, and my daughter has since joined the school and is currently in Year 4.

I have always wanted to be involved in education and whilst I haven't trained to be a teacher this felt like the best way to be able to make a difference to the local community. I absolutely loved my own school years and know that this passion for learning from an early age has made a huge difference to my life. Every child deserves to have the same experience and as a governor, I will help maintain and develop the quality of education Manor Park delivers for current and future generations of pupils.

 

I am Vice Chair of Governors and also lead the Resources Committee. My aim is to bring a different perspective and way of thinking to the leadership of the school, challenge strategy, plus where needed provide financial expertise and scrutiny.

 

Outside of work life and being a parent you will most likely find me swimming, travelling or crafting.
