GOVERNOR LEAD:   Guy Collings 

Guy is our lead Governor for safeguarding at Beech Grove Primary.

Guy has a strong background in safeguarding. Whilst he is currently Head of Insight, Performance & Intelligence at Bristol City Council, he was previously a Detective Superintendent with the Metropolitan Police where he ran a range of safeguarding units across 4 South London Boroughs. He also represented the Metropolitan Police at a number of Safeguarding Children Partnerships.

Immediately before moving to the South West and after leaving the police, he was the Independent Chair of the Merton Safeguarding Children Partnership.

Guy is very involved with our school and frequently visits to check our systems and speak to the children and staff. We are delighted to have his support and expertise as we continue to develop our practice and provision at Beech Grove.
