rogerREV ROGER CARR-JONES

I am a former pupil and parent at St Peter’s. I was ordained as a permanent deacon in the diocese in 2008 and have significant pastoral and catechetical experience of walking alongside people. I am committed to highlighting the interconnectedness of education and faith, as both should be a journey of self-discovery and continual inner growth. I have significant professional experience both as an auditor with a large public body and most recently in Project Management within the diocese. I am a good listener and provide fact based opinions with a broad understanding of the future challenges and opportunities for our Catholic family of schools. I strongly believe that supporting good communication and professionalism are the bedrock of a healthy school community. I look forward to working with and walking alongside our teachers, support staff and students as a herald of hope and messenger of the Good News. I was appointed as a Foundation Governor and sit on the Finance Resources and Premises Committee.
