Jan Meyer

Chair of Governors

I am very pleased to be the Chair of Governors at St John’s Meads Church of England Primary School. My background is education, having spent many years as a teacher in London, Somerset and East Sussex and as a headteacher in East Sussex. Since leaving headship I have worked as a school improvement partner for East Sussex and as a diocesan school effectiveness partner for the Diocese of Chichester.

Although I am now semi-retired I still have a special interest in education and I am also a governor at Polegate School and the Pioneer Federation. My husband was also a headteacher. I have two grown up daughters, one trained to be a teacher and the other is a lecturer and research scientist at a London university.

I love to travel and explore new places around the world and thoroughly enjoy doing some of those adventures in our campervan. My hobbies are walking, yoga, gardening and skiing.
