I became a Governor in January 2014 and am a member of the Finance Committee as well as Link Governor for Safeguarding. I have lived in Queen's Park for over 12 years. I have a daughter, Ana Sofia, in Year 5 and a younger son in Year 2 as well as a nephew and niece in the school. My professional life has been in international development, focussing on improving health in developing countries. I currently work as an independent consultant working on sexual and reproductive health and rights and am also on the board of a number of NGOs in Africa and Latin America
Chair of Governors
I have been a parent governor since June 2017. I am lawyer by training and currently head up corporate affairs at Channel 4. I have two children at Salusbury - James in year 6 and Evie in year 3 and I am married to Emily who has been active in FOSS and Greenspace throughout the children's time at the School.
I’m Karen Kennedy-Medford and I’m delighted to join the governing body at Salusbury Primary School.
I am in education myself, and have been teaching now for sixteen years. I am an Assistant Headteacher at Wembley Primary School. I have taught in Reception, Year 2, 3 & 4, as well as being a Literacy and English As An Additional Language Leader. I hope I can bring my knowledge and experience of education to assist with the school’s excellent progress. I also hope that by joining the governing body, we can set up links between our two schools.
I have lived in Queens Park for 8 years, and the connected area for nearly 15. We have two children at Salusbury; in year 4 and year 1. Both have come up through the nursery and now enjoy every aspect of school life. Professionally I am the Managing Director of an advertising agency, and try to bring some of my personnel and financial management experience to the Governor body.
I was elected in January 14 as a parent governor and am now a co-opted governor. My three sons all attended Salusbury school and have now moved up to QPCS.
My background is in communications and PR. I owned and managed a PR agency for many years, which I recently sold into a bigger media group. I am now working in a large, London-based PR agency.
My ambition as a governor is to do all I can to make the school a centre of excellence - where pupils are happy to come, teachers are delighted to teach and parents feel actively involved with the school community.
I am a director of the Charteris Sports Centre and part of the group that successfully campaigned to keep it open to serve the community.
I have been an enthusiastic member of Salusbury Primary School since 2015. I am the current Year 4 leader. I have been living in London for three years after moving from Sydney, Australia. I came here after completing a four-year degree at the University of Notre Dame. I am excited to be the staff governor and looking forward to learning a lot on the way
