Marty Johnson, Chair
I have lived in the Andover area since 1963 and have three grown up children. I joined the Governing Board at Vigo Infants School as a Co-opted Governor in 2015. Previously I worked at Andover College for thirteen years both as a Lecturer and as an LSA specialising in working with SEND students. I have also worked at a local Primary school for two and a half years. I became Chair of the Governing Board at the beginning of the Autumn term in 2018 when Julie Bray was appointed Head Teacher. I feel very fortunate to be part of the school during this exciting time, when as a Governing Body, we will be focussing on developing and supporting improvements, ensuring every child will achieve their learning potential and enjoy a high quality education.
Sara Falk, Vice-Chair
I joined the Governing Board of Vigo Junior School in December 2014. I am passionate about improving education in Andover and sit on the governing boards for John Hanson and Smannell Fields School. I am also part of a team that set up a local charity called Kids on Track which runs activity clubs during the holidays and after school. I have four teenage children but before that I worked as a Management Consultant.
I joined the governing board of Vigo Primary School in July 2018. I have worked in education for my entire career, firstly as a teacher, then headteacher, in the school improvement services of a number of local authorities and finally as Director of Schools in a London borough. Now mostly retired, with grown up children and now grandchildren, I look forward to having the time to support the school in the next steps of its improvement journey. I am the SEN governor and have a particular interest in ensuring that every child receives the highest quality of education.
