My background is in Social Work and I have worked in the Boulevard community as a Family Support Worker for the last 15 years.  During that time I have gained a huge amount of insight into Chiltern’s local community and have been an enthusiastic supporter of the work the school has done to engage with that community.  I am currently training to be a Play Therapist and am fortunate to work in a number of other Thrive Trust schools delivering this work.  I have 2 daughters at Chiltern and am passionate about encouraging the school’s work to provide the best education that they can to every child in their care.

My name is Veronica Voinea. I wanted to become a Governor because it is an excellent opportunity to allow me to get involved in the English education of my boys.

My skills and experiences in my studies will make a great contribution in the school. I love working with children and communicating with people. I was a Teacher in Primary and Secondary school in my country and was involved with the school olympics and librarian activities.

I became a member of the team here at Chiltern Primary School in 2021 after beginning my teaching career at Priory Primary, one of our partner schools within Thrive Trust. In my early career I worked alongside lots of families within our locality in my role as a family support volunteer. The combination of community work and my role in education has ignited a spark in me to encourage and support teaching, learning and opportunities within our school. Being a Governor at Chiltern Primary School will help me to provide support to my Chiltern colleagues and represent my team on the governing body.

Being a Governor at Chiltern will help me to provide support to Chiltern colleagues, further develop my understanding of primary education, and enable me to support the transition process of Chiltern students.
