Hello, allow me to introduce myself. I am Kevin Cheetham, chair of governors of the Coastal Federation which includes Mundesley Infant and Junior schools, Bacton primary school, and the KS1 special resource base for behaviour. My background was originally in telecommunications where I was apprenticed to the then Post Office telephones from where I left as a manager in my early forties. I went back to study and gained a first class honours degree in environmental management, and spent time working in Kenya and Copenhagen. I then trained to teach and specialised in Primary Mathematics, ending my teaching career as head of maths in a middle school in Suffolk.

I moved to Mundesley four years ago and during this time the community has found a special place in my heart. I am pleased to chair a board of governors, who bring expertise from a broad area of backgrounds.We all have a very positive attitude to the schools where we have a support and challenge relationship with the school leadership team, working under the mantle “together is stronger”.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss any issues relating to the school, bearing in mind your first port of call regarding any school/child based issues should always be the heads of school.

Or alternatively please contact Simon Wakeman the Executive Head of the Federation

My contact details are  chairofgovs@coastalfederation.com 01263 720401 (School Number)
