My name is Ian McMullan and I have been a Governor here at Wootey Junior School for the past eight years. I am currently the Chair of Governors. I am delighted and proud to continue to support and challenge the school. I have four children, the youngest two of which are still in the school so I have a more than active interest in the continuing success of the school.

I am from the Bahamas and currently sit as a Community Governor. I have had a close relationship with Wooteys for the past five years as my two children attended the school. During this time my wife served as a Parent Governor and I coached the Year 5 and 6 Football team!

 

Being from The Bahamas I am very friendly, outgoing and some say 'a little loud'! I believe in Wootey Junior School, the young people who come through its doors and want to do all that I can to make their time here the best experience possible. As a person of commitment, I will endeavour to help the administration and teachers to achieve their goals for the best of each and every Wootey student that walk these corridors.

I am privileged to have been a Governor at Wootey Junior School for some 20 years - just came as a short term favour! Part of that time I have been Chair of Governors and currently serve on the Finance & Resources committee. I maintain links with those of our pupils who move on to Eggar's school, where I am, more recently, a Governor on their Curriculum committee.

I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to join the Governing Body at Wootey Junior School. My son came up from the Infants in September 2015, and is really enjoying his time at the school. I have a keen interest in education and wanted to support the school in a way I'd be most useful.

 

I come from a business administration/IT background and currently co-own a local IT business as well as work part-time at the Citizens Advice East Hampshire.

 

I am looking forward to becoming more involved in the school over the coming years.
