 Jo Iyashere 

Safeguarding Governor


Hello what’s your name?

Jo Iyashere

What do you do on the Governing Body?

I sit on the Curriculum and Standards committee. I also have two specialist roles as the Looked After Children (LAC) and Safeguarding Governor.

Why did you become a Governor at St John’s? 

When my son Theo started at St John’s I was thrilled to be asked whether I would like to become a Foundation Governor. I hope I can give something back to the school and the wider community

Did you go to St John’s when you were a child?

No I attended Spring Park School

What is your favourite thing about our school?

There are so many things I love about St John’s it is hard to pick a favourite!! I love the vibrant classrooms and displays in the corridor, how well behaved everyone is and the fact that St John’s cares about its wider community  

Is there anything you would change about our school?

I would like more children to have the opportunity to attend St John’s 

What do you do when you’re not helping our School?

I am a social worker and help manage a Children and Young People team. I am also the Parish Safeguarding Officer for St John’s church but above all I am a mum to Theo and Grace
