Sue Mapara has two children who attend St Marys and has been a parent governor since 2008. She is the chair of Admissions & Discipline Committee and has been the safeguarding governor for a number of years. She is an office and projects manager at a publishing company working in regeneration, and hoped to use that skill set(understanding the processes of area regeneration) to help with the parents’ concerns pre, during and post the re-development of St Marys. A firm advocate of the Hard Federation, she has strong community links having lived in Battersea all her life. She is proud to be a parent governor of a school which encourages confidence, independent thought and that celebrates diversity.
