My name is Sam Stockham, I started as a parent governor whilst my children were at the school. I am currently now a Local Authority governor and I was Chair of Governors but have now stepped down to Vice Chair. I have also been a member of the Somerset Governor Strategic group for a year.
I worked in the travel industry for many years but, then qualified as a Teaching Assistant and recently qualified as a Teacher and work in another local school.
My children attended Burnham Infants and I was impressed with the school, that I felt I wanted to give something back to the community and that is why I became a governor.
The prospect of our school and its success is dependent on staff, parents, children and governors. As a governor I would like to ensure that we continue the good practice and build upon our reputation as a school for the future.
