Our Attendance at LGB Meetings and a record of our business and pecuniary interests
Together we form the Local Governing Body of Springwest Academy. We audit our skills as governors to ensure that we have the right mix of people and talent to best support the success of the school. We all undertake safeguarding training every year and three of us are trained in safer recruitment. We have a Clerk, Rebecca Wilson, who takes our minutes and advises us of our legal responsibilities.

Mr Snaddon (Vice Chair)
I am the Vice Chair of the Local Governing Body and am acting as Chair until we appoint a new Chair at our next meeting in December. I have been a Governor of Springwest and previously FCC since 1988 and have in the past been Chair of the Governing Body and Chair of Finance. I am one of the five Members of Tudor Park Education Trust. I am a former pupil of Feltham Community College and was a researcher at the Financial Times newspaper for 26 years. I am pleased to be able to support the local community in which I have always lived. I have a strong belief in high performing local schools for local students to open opportunities to successful careers and adult lives. I am an historian and very much enjoy gathering together a history of our local community.

Daniella Lawson (Chair of LGB)
I was delighted to have been appointed a governor for Springwest Academy in October 2017. I have now been elected Chair and therefore I am also a Director of our Trust (Tudor Park Education Trust) I am a qualified solicitor, and have previously worked in private practice, as managing partner of a multidisciplinary firm. Whilst there, I volunteered as a legal advisor for the Citizens Advice Bureau at the Royal Courts of Justice and today I sit on a committee raising funds for research and treatment of childhood cancers. I am the mother of two teenage boys and passionate about the value of education, and providing opportunities to young people. I am very keen to apply my prior experience to my role as governor, and have taken responsibility for safeguarding at the school, to ensure the that the health and wellbeing of the students are protected in all our activities.
