Governor Statement

As a parent of the school now and for the next 11 years, I am genuinely interested in supporting current developments and future ambitions of the school to positively benefit all pupils for years to come.   I believe that the school community should work in partnership with all stakeholders in ensuring excellence and equality for each and every pupil.  I passionately believe in learning and that schools have this value as their core purpose, where everyone child or adult, learns and realises their potential.  The last eleven years has seen me specialising in School Improvement and Development and so I not only bring my school based and leadership experience to the Governing Body, but also bring the ability to negotiate, challenge and provide honest, constructive feedback to improve and motivate. I have an understanding of leadership systems, Ofsted and policy, including financial policy and budgets.

I contribute objectively to group discussion and can analyse and interpret complex data. Having lived in the area for 26 years, I have an understanding of the wider community in which the school serves and I seek to use this positively in order to fulfil the role of a Governor

Governor Statement

As a parent of two daughters at the school I have become actively involved as both a parent governor, where I am the lead governor on finance and vice-chairman, and in the PSFA, where I currently hold the role of treasurer. This has given me a fantastic opportunity to be involved within a school that is such an important part of our children’s lives. Within the role as a parent governor I hope I am able to give a parents perspective to the governors across the two Key Stages. I would like to think that I am approachable and am able to make valid points to any discussions and decisions when required. Professionally I am a qualified accountant and currently work part-time for various local businesses as well as our family business at home. Over the past 15 years I have worked within a wide variety of businesses and am able to use these skills to assist in the financial side of running a school. I am very passionate about the education of all children and hope I can support the parents and the staff at our school to continue to provide an excellent education for our children.

Governor Statement

I am an Assistant Manager at Harrington Hall Farms Ltd (Harrington Hall). The estate is owned by the Price family and extends to Sutterby (where I live), Brinkhill, Hagworthingham and a parcel of land at Greetham. We grow mainly combinable crops including wheat, barley, oil seed rape, and run some cattle on the grassland around the estate. I am responsible for running the farm on a day to day basis. I also have the key responsibility of appointed person for Health and Safety and, with the rest of the staff, have regular First aid training updates. I also have ICT training for a variety of ‘Precision Farming’ software and hardware that is becoming prevalent in the efficient, cost effective, and environmentally responsible production of our food in the 21st century. My children, when younger, were pupils at the school and I became a parent Governor early in their tenure at Tetford. I have been involved with various projects in that time, often on a practical level as a Governor and also through the PSFA. When the children had both moved on I was keen to continue and am now a Co-opted Governor.

Governor Statement

I joined the Edward Richardson Primary School in 2000 as a parent helper, and have had two children that progressed happily through the school. I was employed by the school as a one to one Teaching Assistant in 2003 and have since become Lead Teaching Assistant and Midday Controller. With the help of the school I have taken a course in Childhood Counselling and am also one of the school's qualified First Aiders. I have accompanied the school on many occasions for days out and of course the very popular school residential trip (which I will be accompanying for my thirteenth time in 2016).

I believe that I bring positivity and stability to assist the children’s learning which is also enriched by the fantastic staff at school. I am immensely proud to say I work at Edward Richardson Primary School and will continue to support and help the young lives there.

Governor Statement

I was extremely fortunate to be appointed by Andrew Hyde in 1995 and still know how lucky I am to work in such a fantastic community. Throughout these years I have seen many changes: the building, the curriculum/ assessment, some of the workforce and obviously the families. The stability of being in one place for so long has meant that we have all been able to work collaboratively on a daily basis and strive to continually improve our school for the benefit of all the children in our care. We, ourselves, continue to improve our own skills and knowledge to keep up-to-date with current initiatives, all of which is then passed onto both children and parents alike in order that all the children continue to be excited and stimulated in their learning. I have been a staff representative on the Governing Body once before and know first hand how hard all the Governors work and how much of their time they give to our school, attending meetings, visiting the school to see what happens on a daily basis and writing / reading reports and policies. I hope the qualities I have, from both my previous employment in industry and now as Key Stage One Co-ordinator, will enhance and support the work already being done on the Governing Body.

Governor Statement

I have been involved in education since 2001, qualifying as a teacher in 2003. I have worked across a range of educational disciplines, from emotional and behavioural to severe learning difficulties in a residential school. I feel I offer a broad and balanced approach to governance, sharing these skills and ensuring as a school we set high and challenging targets that are rigorously checked. My speciality is essentially Special Educational Needs and I work closely with the SENCo on our school bids, discuss pupils and provide an advisory role in the changing educational world.

Governor Statement

I am a parent of a child in Year 2. When thinking about what to write in this personal statement, I decided to include the qualifications I have gained or indeed my career path prior to having my child. However, I felt that was rather irrelevant as the qualifications I feel are relevant are:

  1. Being a parent
  2. Having a strong desire to support an already successful learning establishment

Over the 2 yrs since Rosemary started school, I have visited to hear the children read, accompanied school trips and within the last year joined the PSFA. I currently work as a Clerk to the Governing Body at a local primary school, so therefore have a full perspective on the workings of a governing body and more importantly the role of a parent governor. I aim to be a very visible and approachable governor.
