Mrs. D Gibbs-Naguar
Mrs. A Webzell
My name is Alison Webzell and I am delighted to have been elected as one of the newest Governors for Holy Trinity C of E Primary School.
As a governor, I want to work with everyone, to ensure all pupils have the opportunity to achieve their best through the best possible education that we as a school and a member of Aletheia Anglican Academies Trust can provide. I want to work with the school to ensure that we provide a safe and supportive environment for the children to learn and thrive.
I have lived in Gravesend all my life and have been a member of St George’s Church for nearly 30 years. I currently help with the Children’s work as a Sunday school teacher. I also work locally as a member of the teaching staff at another school within the trust.
Mr. M. Dockrell (Staff Governor)
I am the Deputy Head Teacher here at Holy Trinity and have taught here for thirteen years across many year groups and in a variety of different roles. Holy Trinity has always held a special place in my heart and I even completed part of my own teacher training here! I am now looking forward to supporting the school and working within a different capacity. For a number of years I have been a Specialist Leader of Education and have supported colleagues in other schools throughout Kent with a particular focus on Initial Teacher Training, Newly Qualified Teachers and Professional Development. Our school is an Advanced Partnership School with the University of Greenwich and I am a Senior Mentor, therefore, I often interview for people to get places on teacher training programmes. Recently I have been accredited with the Church of England National Professional Qualification for Headship (CoEPQH) which has equipped me well for leading within a faith based school and supporting the strategic direction of the school. I honestly couldn't think of anywhere else I would rather work and spend the majority of my time. To come in each day and be blessed with (your) delightful children, a fantastic, hard working staff team and supportive parents really does make each day special and rewarding.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with friends and family, relaxing with my cat, Bob (I often try and fit Bob into a maths word problem or two) and escaping up to the Lake District for some walks, climbs and quiet moments taking in the idyllic scenery (along with an occasional pub lunch!) I'm looking forward to this new position and all of the exciting opportunities ahead.
