Hormead C of E
First and Nursery School

"Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of God"

Jo McNamara

I have been a Governor since 2017 at a Hertfordshire Specialist School where my middle child with Down's syndrome attends. All three of my children have been part of Hormead School during their education, with more recently my youngest joining reception in September 2021. 

I have 22 years working in both Education and Children's Residential setting, currently now undertaking the role of a Responsible Individual for a therapeutic children's home for children aged 7-12 years with the ethos of finding permeance within a family home.

Outside of work I have been Group Scout Leader in Buntingford since 2001, I am passionate about providing opportunity and experiences for children to develop and grow holistically.

I hope that I can bring to the Governors board my experiences and support the school with their ethos and values and ongoing vision for development and growth.
