Kerrigen Marriner LA Appointed Member Link for Safeguarding & Looked After Children
Head of Support for Learning Services, LBTH

I became an Associate Member of the GB in March 2016 and a permanent member in January 2017.

I am the Local Authority governor and represent Tower Hamlets Education and Partnerships directorate. I am also the Chair of the Fair Access Panel which ensures that all children in Tower Hamlets that transfer schools as a result of a Managed Move or an exclusion, or who come into the borough from elsewhere and need additional support have access to a high quality educational placement. I therefore work very closely with London East AP as part of my day-to-day work and they are equally members of the FAP panel.

I have worked in Tower Hamlets for over 12 years and I am really committed to helping schools and families to access the best possible support to ensure great outcomes.

I am very lucky to work with such a supportive and skilled Management Committee.

Link member for the Hospital School
Learning Producer, Historic Royal Palaces

Sarah Phillips has been a community member since 2010. During that time, she has created and delivered several ambitious projects for members of London East Alternative Provision facilitating engagement with arts and heritage alongside personal development and raising aspirations. Notable projects have included the graffiti hoarding designs for Enchanted Palace at Kensington Palace, the design and development of the ‘iTower’ app and ‘Identity and Protest’ (looking at modern riots and the Peasant’s Revolt), for HM Tower of London. These have been through her current role within the Learning & Engagement team of Historic Royal Palaces. As well as offering some continuity to the GB through its changes over the past few years Sarah’s particular focus is to support the pastoral wellbeing of LEAPs pupils and staff through its progression, to assist with development of evaluation methods and tools, and as a link Governor.

Helen Byrne Co-opted Chair of Business Committee

I am currently a Programme Director in the Strategy team at Barts Health NHS Trust. I have worked at the Trust for 5 years, and was previously Director of Operations at Whipps Cross hospital 

I joined the GB in March 2016, having heard about it through the Royal London Hospital school, which is part of London East AP. I felt I wanted to give something back in the LB of Tower Hamlets given the population profile and the number of young people in the Borough. I wanted to play a part in alternative provision as opposed to mainstream.
