I now work for a local fire safety company as a risk assessor and service engineer.  I have been heavily involved in volunteering locally, previously working as the treasurer for First Clacton Scout Group, Chair of the Parent Teacher Association at Coppins Green Primary School and as a Local Governor at Clacton Coastal Academy. I enjoy my family, travelling, football, and chilling in the sun, listening to music with a cold beer.

Clare Fletcher – I joined the Academy Transformation Trust Governing Board in 2018 as a Parent Governor while my daughter attended Ravens. In this role, I made regular visits to the school and supported the children by attending award assemblies, spending time in class and
attending Governor meetings. I stayed on as a Community Governor when my daughter left Ravens and have recently been appointed as the Health and Safety Governor. With my previous school experience and my NNEB, I have a strong understanding of the importance of maintaining a high level of health and safety across the site to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all pupils is upheld.

My role is to support the children’s learning needs and implement interventions where needed. I also give support to children with emotional needs helping them with their self-esteem and confidence. I really enjoy my role as it is very rewarding. I am also a parent within the school as I have children in KS2 and EYFS. I have a level 3 in child care and have completed various training since joining Ravens Academy.

Charley Minter – I joined Ravens Academy as a Newly Qualified Teacher 7 years ago. Since then, I have progressed through the school taking on roles such as PE Lead, Key Stage Two Lead and now Vice Principal.
