Anthony Poole

I am a primary school teacher and I work in a large three form entry, semi-urban school in Cheshire. I am passionate about education and providing the very best opportunities for all pupils. I consider a rich and engaging curriculum imperative in fuelling a desire for learning and learning for life. 

I am a firm believer that school should be at the heart of the community. I became a governor to offer my skills and experience to support the school in taking account of the views of the entire school community (teachers, pupils, governors, parents and other supporting agencies) to become the best it can be.
