Tania Osborne - Governor Profile - ALNS LGB

I am Tania Osborne, Admiral Lord Nelson School’s Chair of Governors.  I have been an ALNS Governor since 2014 and I have been nominated as Chair of Governors each year since 2016.  I am very proud to be connected with ALNS as I believe in its vision that every child counts and that all our children should ‘Dare to Dream and Aim to Achieve’.

Jane Beecher - Governor Profile - ALNS LGB - July 2021

I am currently Co-Chair of ALNS LGB and have been Vice Chair previously for 5 years. I am Link Governor for Quality of Education and Governor Development and Training.

I am a retired English teacher and have taught in Portsmouth for 35 years at CPGS and ALNS. I taught at ALNS for 16 years until my retirement in 2016 and I was a member of the Senior Leadership Team at ALNS with several Senior management roles. I was also a staff governor at ALNS for several years.

The Governing body’s purpose is to support and challenge the school  to ensure that ALNS sustains a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction going forward; to hold the Head Teacher and school to account  for the educational performance of the school each year and to oversee the financial performance of the school ensuring that the money is well spent and provides value for money for the whole school community.

ALNS Governing Body is made up of 11Governors; Community and Authority, Parents, Staff and Head Teacher and we report to the Salterns Academy Trust (SAT).

The achievements and attainment of the school and the comprehensive learning and development experience it provides are well known in our community. ALNS achieved another GOOD OFSTED rating in 2017. We remain focussed on continuous and sustained improvement and progress, adapting and responding to the new challenges that arise every day.

So please learn more about ALNS, our aspirations and goals. We strive to include our students, teachers, parents and the wider community in which we work and live so if you have a query, an idea or want to work with us to help make ALNS even better, please contact me or the Head Teacher at the school.
