Chair of Governors

I am Noreen Fraser I have been a school governor for nearly 30 years. I am committed to giving the children the very best education possible in the best possible surroundings. I am very proud of how Park View has evolved and the pleasure it gives me to know that the pupils’ in the school have the opportunity to reach their full potential. All of the staff play their part, the pupils education and welfare is of paramount importance and the main focus. The governors are dedicated and are fully behind and support the school in the direction in which we are going. They are very proactive and involved. It really is the case and very apt that the vision and ethos both the staff and governors all share is “Together We Grow Stronger”.

Vice Chair of Governors

I am a South Shields woman, born and bred attending local schools. I went to Liverpool University and did a PGCE at Newcastle. I then worked in a local Secondary school for 25 years teaching Geography and I was Head of Careers and Head of Pastoral. In 2001, I joined South Tyneside Education Authority managing various projects such as Learning Mentors, Learning Support units, Behaviour Improvement, Mental Health in schools and the Resilience Programme. I have been a Governor of Park View School since it was the Galsworthy Centre, over 15 years ago and have watched it grow and develop into an excellent centre of learning for young people with many complex needs.
I am now retired but continue to give my time to the school as Vice Chair of Governors because it is so worthwhile. The school continues to be a busy educational and positive place. I am really looking forward to see what the new year brings.

Parent Governor

Hello, I'm Maria Wilkinson. I'm a mother to 3 sons aged 15, 16 and 30 years old, my youngest son attends this school. As a Parent Governor, I want to be the voice of both parents/carers and students, I want them to know they are being listened to. I will try to help them or point them in the right direction for further support. The staff and Governors at Park View School really do have the children's best interests at heart. We want to help the pupils understand that the obstacles they face through various learning difficulties won't hold them back and that they can achieve many things with the support of staff, Governors and their own effort.
