Mr Roger Clear - Vice Chair of Governors, Chair of the Pay & Appraisal Committee and Chair of the Governance & Audit Committee
I joined the governing body as a Foundation Governor in June 2011 representing St Mary’s Church. My wife and I have lived in Warsash since 2003 and we have attended St Mary’s regularly in that time. We have two daughters, both now adults, who went to school in Solihull in the West Midlands. Both daughters are married and we now have three grandchildren. My background is in engineering, telecommunications and IT and I hope 30 years business management experience, part of which was spent managing a department of 90 people, will prove useful in my role as a Governor. I sat for 20 years as a Magistrate, mostly in the Family Court. I am a keen sailor and formerly a member of the Volunteer Harbour Patrol in Portsmouth.
I am a Foundation Governor nominated by the Diocese of Portsmouth and I am delighted that my term has been renewed until on 6 June 2023. As I was a member of the Governing Body at the time of conversion to an Academy, I am also regarded as a First Governor.
I was appointed by the Diocese as a Foundation Member of the Trust on 6 September 2017.
I am Vice Chair of Governors, Chair of the Pay & Appraisal Committee and of the Governance & Audit Committee and a member of the Finance & Personnel Committee and the Forging Links Committee, of which I am Vice-Chair.
I have completed certificated Safer Recruitment Training and I am Governor with responsibility for Safeguarding and Child Protection and the induction mentoring of new governors.
Pecuniary and other interests: none.
First appointed as a Go9vernor: June 2011
