Julie Sullivan (Director and Chair Sidney Stringer MAT Board)
I have been a school governor for many years, at both secondary and primary schools in the city, and was chair of Sidney Stringer when it was decided to become an academy - a very difficult decision at the time but proved to be the right one. I have been Chair of the MAT for the last 2 years.
Previous to retirement, I worked for Warwickshire County Council as a Community Safety Manager, dealing with crime prevention, which included not only burglary and car crime but also domestic abuse, sexual assault and rape and the Prevent agenda.
I went to school in Coventry, have worked for Coventry City Council in the past, and want to ensure that all our students have access to an excellent education, providing a firm foundation for the rest of their lives.
