Mr Clifton


I was appointed to the Governing Body by the Local Authority about 15 years ago . I was appointed as Chair of Governors in 2015 after having been Vice Chair of Governors for eight years.

I have recently retired from a career in Local Government working in Community Safety, being the Birmingham Community Safety Partnership’s Senior Policy Officer for anti-social behaviour and conflict resolution.

I am an ex pupil of Kingsland Primary School, having attended from 1956 – 1959, where after passing my 11+ examination I went on to Great Barr School. I still live in the local community and have seen the school change physically over the years to evolve into the really modern school we have today.

The role of a school governor is an important one and sometimes a challenging one. However, I really enjoy my role as a governor and I am committed to ensuring that the school continues to provide excellent teaching and learning in a welcoming environment. I am regularly in school, to observe teaching, pupil behaviour and I work with the children (which is the fun part of the role). I am currently class governor for Year 5 and support the class governor for Year 3. I also help out with football training and coach the school football team.
