YVETTE THOMAS

WWSET Trustee

Meet the Trustees | Yvette Thomas

Yvette has worked with Buckinghamshire Council for the past 20 years – initially as a School Improvement Adviser and currently as Equalities and School Improvement Manager for Children’s Services. An educator for the past 30 years she has worked in a range of educational institutions and has Secondary headship experience. Yvette has during her career also been seconded to UNESCO and UNICEF working on flagship projects. Bringing schools together from different contexts has been an area of work that Yvette has been involved in both in the Caribbean and UK.

She has spoken at national conferences on partnership working with schools on Community Cohesion issues and has supported over 60 schools in her County via the Linking Network to work in pairs on the diversity and community cohesion agenda. As a result, Yvette was invited to become a member of The Linking Network Board which oversees this work across the country.

Yvette is also co-author of a chapter in a book entitled ‘Education in the Commonwealth Caribbean and Netherland Antilles’ (2014). Yvette has a passion for training and regularly delivers training to teachers, senior leaders and school Governors. She has annually supported WWFC and Show Racism the Red Card to deliver events at Adams Park for Primary pupils in the local area. Yvette proudly sits on the Show Racism the Red Card SE Advisory Group.

To date, Yvette insists her greatest achievement has been raising three well rounded and balanced children who she adores.
