Diary of a School Governor – Sejal Rabone
As part of this year’s Inclusive Governance campaign, we’re asking a range of school governors to provide diary entries detailing their experiences in the role. As well as gaining first-hand insights into people’s diverse governance journeys, we’ll explore how boards are addressing issues surrounding diversity and inclusion. Next up is chair of governors, Sejal Rabone.
About Sejal and her role as a school governor:
Sejal become a school governor in 2012, when her eldest started primary school. Twelve years on, she is now chair of governors at a maintained federation. Additionally, she is a Member of the Trust at a Single Academy Trust in the secondary sector.
Sejal’s work, as a member of support staff at another secondary school in a MAT, gives her invaluable insight into the education space. Through her governance roles, she feels privileged to shape school improvement for all students.
While Sejal tells us ‘a govenor’s life is always busy’, she keeps fit by playing golf, learning ballroom/Latin dancing and is also part of a book club outside of meetings and training.
In her second video, chair of governors Sejal Rabone explores how she can ensure that DEI is at the heart of her role.
In this instalment, Sejal Rabone talks further about how she ensures DEI within governance through her actions as chair.
Sejal Rabone’s fourth video entry sees her talk about INSET days and her proactive attitude when her school invites a guest speaker in to talk about diversity and inclusion.
