Featured Governor:


  My name is Sunita Rathore. I joined the Djanogly Sherwood Academy Governing Body in November 2014, as a Staff Governor.

  I am currently the Parent Liaison Officer and Receptionist for Djanogly Sherwood Academy. I am also the Health and Safety Governor.

  Prior to working for Djanogly Learning Trust I worked for a complaints department in a customer service role, I felt excellent communication was a key skill to bring to the position at Djanogly Sherwood and I started working for Djanogly Learning Trust in September 2013.

  Outside of school I am married with two children who keep me very busy. I love to try new things, visit new places and I am always on the lookout for a new challenge. My passions are travelling and reading. 


Why I wanted to be a governor – We believe that every child has a right to an education that gives them the best opportunity, the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed. I was part of the first team to create the sister-site of Djanogly Sherwood Academy at Sherwood Rise; being part of the governing board means I have an active role in contributing to strategic decisions which meet the aims and ethos of Djanogly  Sherwood Academy. 

If you see me around school, please say ‘Hello’ and if you have any questions, please don’t be afraid to ask.
