The Board of Visitors at Maldon Court was established in 2004 by the Principal, Mrs Loraine Guest.
The initial aim of the board was to provide an alternative source of advice for parents and staff and to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school. Mrs Guest felt that she needed a sounding board and support for her vision to move the school forward.
Over the years and as the school has grown, the Board of Visitors role has evolved. Members of the board are now involved in many aspects of school life, including exclusion appeals and teacher interviews. The board offers advice on a diverse range of issues including policy approval, the school's curriculum, safeguarding, finance management and strategic planning.
The current Board of Visitors is completely independent from the running of the school. Between them the members have a wealth of experience and an extremely valuable breadth of knowledge.
The board is made up of the following individuals:
Mrs Jenny Burrett
A retired Headteacher who was chair of the local Independent Association for Prep Schools for three years, and is currently a Director of Education.
Mrs Bridget Harris
An executive Headteacher at three state schools and a national leader of teachers.
Mrs Sandra Nunn
A retired Headteacher who is also a governor in a local state school and chair of the Parish Council.
Mrs Sara Woolnough
A former parent who works for the local health service supporting nurses with safeguarding and child health issues.
