Matt grew up locally – before moving away for 20 years. He returned to live in Blewbury in 2013, having lived in northern England, Belfast, London, Sydney, and Brussels during his years away. He’s a journalist and broadcaster with the BBC and brings a fearless approach to holding authority figures to account to his role as Governor.
Matt joined the governing board as a parent governor, before being retained when the panel changed first to an Interim Executive Board and then to its current IAC format. He wants to see the pupils of Blewbury Primary School get the best education and have every opportunity to flourish in all aspects of their personal development, and through his role as a governor he intends to challenge and support those within the school community to ensure this is endlessly strived for.
