Deborah Reeve – Chair, Co-Opted Governor

I have lived in Cornwall for over 25 years. On leaving school I trained as a primary school teacher. My background prior to living here was in local government, but I have also had positions within the tourism industry and more recently as a local business owner.

I am the parent of two grown up children and am very active in the local community. I have been a Redruth Town Councillor since 2013 and at this time I am the Deputy Town Mayor. I also chair the Town’s Amenities Committee and the Redruth Christmas Festival; both roles I am passionate about. I hope I have helped to give something back to the community which is my home.

In my spare time; please note the use of humour- I am the secretary of the Redruth-Real del Monte Twinning Association, a member of the Redruth and District Chamber of Commerce, part of the committee that runs Murdoch House and I organise the Redruth Community Christmas Breakfast. I also sing in the Cornwall Symphony Chorus.

I am privileged to be a governor at Pennoweth and work hard to ensure that, alongside all my fellow governors, we support the staff and children to make Pennoweth an outstanding school. I will always take the time to listen to your concerns, answer your questions if I can, or if I not I will find someone who can! I will fight to protect our schools & public services, and of course our young people, in order to ensure they get the education and opportunities they deserve.
