Meet the Governors
DIANE TURNER – Chair of Governors
With sons in Year 2 and Reception, I see how special the atmosphere is at Downs View Infants and want to work with school leadership to ensure children learn, develop, play and have fun.
My husband, sons and I moved to Little Burton from Medway in 2015. I volunteered as a governor to contribute to the school and Kennington community as we puts down roots in the area.
As well as my interest as a parent, I work part time at a professional services firm in London. In my day job, I help leaders define and implement strategy, build good stakeholder relationships, make decisions and manage crises.
