Mrs Z Balding

Inclusion Officer, Staff Governor & Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

Favourite book/film/TV show: Enid Blyton's The Magic Faraway Tree did. I can't wait to introduce my own children to the adventures of Moonface and his friends.

Favourite food: There's probably not a child at SKPS who doesn't know of Mrs Balding's love of shepherd's pie - yummy!

Favourite quote: 'If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all' – Oscar Wilde

Governor Profile

Elected by the staff
Appointed January 2019




Zoe enjoyed a 25-year career as a journalist, working on a wide range of women’s lifestyle and home interest titles. When her second child started school in 2017, she decided the time was right to fulfil a long-held ambition to work with children. She started at SKPS as a parent volunteer, before stepping into the role of Lunchtime Supervisor. In September 2018 she became a Teaching Assistant.

As a governor, Zoe would like to raise awareness among the teaching staff of the work that the governors do and ensure that the opinions and viewpoints of staff are being listened to at board level.
