Vice Chair of Governors – Mr R Cowie

I feel privileged to continue serving Eaton Park Academy as Vice Chair of Governors, having been initially voted by parents to the role of Parent Governor when my children were pupils at the academy. During this time, while my children attended the academy, I developed a strong connection for all aspects of the school, realising the crucial role it plays in delivering a positive experience for every child throughout these early years of their education.

In my professional life, I work in the field of Learning and Development, and I am interested to see the similarities in how people learn and the methods that can be used, whether in an adult learning environment or in a school environment with children.

My responsibilities include link governor for English, as well as for British Values. I am passionate about giving every child the best opportunity to fulfil their potential and to prepare them for the future.

I love to spend spare time socialising with my family, eating out and visiting the cinema and theatre. I also enjoy reading and watching sports events.
