Keilly Smith



My name is Keilly, I am 40 years of age and originally from London. I am married and have two children aged four and two. My eldest son Kayden had just started in Reception year. I am a keen runner having taken up the hobby following cancer within my family.

In October, I will attempt the Bournemouth marathon to raise money for Macmillan. In 1995, I joined the Metropolitan police as civilian staff. In 2002, I joined as a Police Officer. Shortly after transferring to Dorset Police in 2007, I was fortunate enough to be selected for the role of Detective Constable on the Child Abuse Investigation Team in Bournemouth Police station. My role is to safeguard children and to prosecute offenders and I am very passionate about this. Excluding maternity leave, I have approximately 5 years’ experience in this role.

I have undertaken many safeguarding training courses and every day involves working jointly with outside agencies including schools.

I feel that I have the relevant skills and experience for working within this environment and as well as contributing to the school, I would like to take some skills away from the role of parent governor.
