Governing Body Members

Ann Hill

“My name is Ann Hill and I am the Vintners Company Sponsor Governor  for Stepney Greencoat School.  I am a part time Intervention  teacher in Key Stage One in Hammersmith and mother to 3 grown up  children the eldest of whom is training to be a Secondary School History teacher so education is very important to me and that is why the Vintners Company chose me to represent them on your Governing Body.  The links with the Vintners Company go back to the founding of a charity school in east London by Benjamin Kenton,  Master of the  Vintners Company in 1776 and are celebrated every year on Kenton Day.  I am on the Standards Committee and am the link governor for IT and the International Primary Curriculum.  I see my role as one of support for the fantastic work achieved by the staff at Stepney Greencoat and of fostering greater links between the Vintners Company and the School to ensure that it is a meaningful partnership.”

Iris Bryzak

Iris Bryzak“My name Iris Bryzak and I became a governor in 1987, when my children were at Stepney Greencoat. All governors are linked with an area of school life and my areas are inclusion and safeguarding. Inclusion covers children with special educational needs, children with English as an additional language, and gifted and talented children. I chair the resources committee, which meets once a term to oversee the school’s budget, ensuring that we make the best use of the resources available to us. We also review all the school’s policies, updating as necessary. I became a school governor because I value the school and want to support the staff in offering an excellent education with a Christian ethos, which meets every child’s needs, including their spiritual needs.”

Richard Bray

“I’m a foundation governor through my involvement with St Anne’s Church, and I am the link governor for RE and collective worship.  You might also meet me through the holiday club we run each October half term at St Anne’s.  My day job is with a church in the City which holds lunchtime talks for office workers.  I have three children, the oldest two of whom go to school at St. Luke’s on the Isle of Dogs (which is where we live).”
