Cathryn Overall was appointed as a Foundation Governor by the Diocese in 2010 and has thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the children, teachers and staff of this vibrant, friendly school. With the school and the church at the heart of the local community, Cathryn feels privileged to be making a contribution towards strengthening those links. She is currently Chair of the Foundation Committee and the Curriculum Committee with specific governor responsibility for Literacy and Early Years.
Cathryn and her husband have been living in Romsley since 2003. Their daughter is now in upper KS2, although it only seems like yesterday when she was attending Romsley's pre-school nursery! A regular performer in the Romsley village pantomime, Cathryn values the sense of friendship and community which the village offers and she has loved making Romsley her home.
Since 2001, Cathryn has worked at the University of Birmingham as a Programme Manager. She currently runs Academic English support for the University's 4,000 international students and manages a large group of EAP (English for Academic Purposes) teachers. Although the HE environment is a world away from primary education, her job routinely involves the same areas of educational management, e.g. assessment, curriculum design, resources and staffing, which underpin school life. Despite this, Cathryn learns new things every time she goes into St Kenelm's...and long may this continue!
