I'm Jamie, and I am Chair of the Board of Trustees of Inspiring Learners Multi-Academy Trust. I led the process to establish the trust in early 2018, and prior to that I was Chair of Tyntesfield Primary School's Governing Body. I was also Chair of the Curriculum and Standards Committee, and have been a governor since 2011. I currently also Chair the Trafford Teaching School Alliance Board - a collaboration of over 50 schools in Trafford working together to improve teaching and learning in schools in Trafford.
I am immensely proud to have been able to lead Tyntesfield's governing body over the past few years, and I am tremendously excited about the future of Inspiring Learners. This relationship will let our schools collaborate at a deep level, and I can't wait to see how the staff make the most of this opportunity, and the positive impact it will have on teaching and learning in both schools.
Day-to-day, I work with data, advising government departments, not-for-profit organisations, and businesses on data strategy. I am also Director of Open Data Manchester, a community interest company I helped set up to promote a more equitable society through fairer use of data. I gained an understanding of educational policy through working with schools to analyse their performance data whilst working for Trafford local authority.
I have three children, two are at Tyntesfield Primary School, although my eldest has now left and attending Sale Grammar School.
