Local Advisory Board

Role of the Local Advisors

Each school within The Circle Trust has its own Local Advisory Board, which works closely with the Head Teacher and the Senior Leadership Team in a strategic role.

The Emmbrook Junior School Local Advisory Board consists of appointed individuals representing parents, teaching staff and the wider community, who support the School’s aims and objectives, and the setting of targets to achieve whole-school improvement.

The Local Advisory Board acts as a ‘critical friend’ to the Head Teacher by providing challenge, advice and support. Our Local Advisors are all volunteers who give their time and expertise free of charge.

Local Advisory Board Members

  • Christine Mitchell – Chair
  • Keith Perkins – Vice Chair
  • Matthew Butchers
  • Samantha Dowse
  • Nina Edwards
  • Darrell Frost
  • Craig Johnson


The Chair of the Local Advisors, Christine Mitchell, can be contacted on [email protected] or via the school address.

Dear Parents & Carers,

A massive thank you for the generous donations to the Wokingham Food Bank last week. There will be a Non-Uniform day on Friday the 1st of December in return for donations of a beverage bottle from Junior children (e.g. wine, beer, fizzy drinks etc. but not fresh items please) and sealed confectionery/chocolate from Infant children.  The bottle tombola will be held On Sunday the 10th of December at the PTA Jingle Bell Jog and Festive Fair. We hope to see as many of you as possible at this brilliant festive fund raiser.

Warm regards

The EJS Team
