Elizabeth Carruthers joined Redcliffe as Head of Centre in 2006.
Rev’d Kat Campion-Spall has lived and worked in the local area as the Associate Vicar at St Mary Redcliffe Church, just up the hill from the Children’s Centre, since 2014. For most of that time her daughter has attended the nursery, beginning in Blackbirds straight after her 2nd birthday, so Kat has a keen interest in both how the Children’s Centre helps individual children to flourish but also how it connects with the life of Redcliffe as a community. Kat’s particular area of responsibility as a governor is literacy.
Hiba is a mother of two, one 3 years old who has just joined Redcliffe Nursery school and an 18 month old. She has been a resident in Redcliffe for two and a half years, and since then has been regularly attending the stay and play groups, taking part in the summer trips and benefiting from the family service and support provided by the children's centre. Hiba has also participated in the drama workshops run by Acta Community Theatre (of which she has recently became a board member) and performed a show along with other parents from the children’s centre.
Redcliffe children's centre and nursery school has a very good reputation in Bristol and being part of the governing body will be of great value to my community which forms 40%-50% of the children in the centre. Hiba's as a trustee with ACTA community theatre has enabled her to acquire good management skills. Hiba also worked in the education sector for 4 years in Sudan and hold's a postgraduate degree in teaching from University of Tours.
The reasons why she applied for the role of parent governor is to make sure that the voice of Redcliffe residents is heard, to enhance the involvement of BME communities in the different activities and services provided by the children's centre which is huge step towards their integration in the British society.
Nikki feels she has the relevant skills and experience to offer the governing team. She completed my BA Hons degree in Supporting Childrens' Development and Learning in 2012. Before and during this study she worked as a Playworker, a Learning Support Assistant and as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. Nikki has a particular passion for working in special educational needs provision and most recently has experience working as a Support Worker in a residential school for children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Nikki also has experience working closely with families and social services. As a full time Mum to two little boys she feels ready for a new challenge and working within a sector she knows a little about would be great!
Jodie works as a clinical psychologist in the NHS, supporting children in the care system. As such, hopefully
she feels she can contribute something of her understanding of the psychological, emotional and cognitive development of young people.
Aylie has come from a commercial business background having worked in food retail for the best part of 20 years. She has managed a large purchasing team and held responsibility for both financial and operational decision making in an international business environment. On moving to Bristol in mid 2016 her daughter joined the Children’s Centre and her relationship with the space and the people began. Through this formative time of getting to know a new city, neighbourhood and community, she developed a deep appreciation of what the Redcliffe Children’s Centre offered and watched her daughter blossom. The quality and style of care was an inspiration and it was a huge support for her family during a time of transition (and the arrival of another baby). To be able to support and give back to the Centre is her reason for wanting to participate in the governing body and she hopes that she can utilise some of her skills and experience from business to help the Centre build upon its strong foundations.
Aoife Nichols has been a parent Governor at Redcliffe since March 2017. Her son has been lucky enough to attend Seagulls for two years (as an October born child). Aoife was so impressed by the kindness and dedication of the staff, as well as the variety and depth of experiences that enrich children's learning at Redcilffe Nursery, that she chose to join the Governing body.
