Governors

Meet the Governors!

 

Below you will find out more information about each of our school governors.  

 

We operate an LGB without Committees structure. The LGB meets at least twice a short term. The Admissions Sub-Committee, consisting of a minimum of three governors, is convened as required. 

NOTICE OF ELECTION OF PARENT GOVERNOR

I am writing to tell you that there is one vacancy for a parent governor and to invite parents/carers who would like to be a governor to put their names forward for appointment.

If there are more candidates than there are vacancies, there will be an election by secret ballot.

The Local Governing Board will be holding information meetings for any parent interested in standing. This will include the opportunity to meet the Chair of Governors, Lyndsay Markham, and other governors. This meeting will outline the role of a governor, the commitment expected and you will also be able to ask any questions you have.

If you wish to stand for election as a parent governor, you must be proposed by a parent/carer of a pupil registered at the school and the nomination must be seconded by another parent/carer of a pupil registered at the school. The proposer and seconder should indicate their support for your candidature by signing the nomination form which is attached to this letter. All nominations should be returned to the Clerk to Governors via the school office by 12.30pm on Thursday 10th January 2019.

Each candidate is recommended to submit a brief profile of themselves (up to 100 words) with the nomination form which will be circulated with the voting papers should an election be necessary.

Parents of registered pupils at the school are eligible to stand for election for parent governorship when a position becomes available and are elected by other parents at the school. ‘Parent’ is defined as including “any individual who has or has had parental responsibility for, or cares or has cared for, a child or young person under the age of 18”.

A parent who, at the time of the election, is employed at this school for more than 500 hours in any consecutive 12 month period, is not eligible to be a parent governor.

Yours sincerely

Nina Walker

Headteacher

Profile
Lyndsay Markham 9/9 9/9

It’s a privilege to be involved in the life of our wonderful school, as I believe that an outstanding education within a nurturing school is one of the most important foundations our children can have. I was fortunate to attend good state schools myself, before completing a history degree at Cambridge and later gaining an MA at Bristol.

I work in corporate communications as a freelance consultant and editor, as well as copy-editing books for an academic publisher. I’m also an assessor for the Institute of Internal Communication’s professional diploma, and I sat on the executive boards of the Institute and its European counterpart for 12 years.

Emma Kellaway 3/9 2/7

I am a mum of two young children, one of which is school age who began her school life in Reception at St Georges Primary back in September 2014.

I have a working history of care and administration in a care setting.

I love the journey both my daughter and I have begun within school life and I would really like the opportunity to support Mrs Medley and her team.

I look forward, if selected, in giving my time and energy to attend meetings and to full fill the post as effectively as I possibly can.

I have traditional values towards family and education whilst embracing new ideas. I feel that children should be nurtured and praised to do their best and that every child has a gift to give.

Colin Welch 8/9 3/7

I’m interested in the role to give something back rather than just being part of the school community. I live near the school which my children Dylan Y2 and Carys Y1 attend and would bring energy, commitment and financial acumen.

I am senior tax inspector dealing with avoidance on financing transactions undertaken by multi-national companies, working with complex calculations and applying the law to established facts. I represent HMRC in tribunals and sit on job interview panels.

I understand the time commitment and can attend meetings in office hours and as well as giving up personal time beyond this.

Marina Turner 8/9 1/2

I've children ages six and three who attend St Georges. I've worked as a Clerk to the Governors at Priory School and I've lived within this locality for thirty years. I'm now living within 400m of the school. 

 

I have a Humanities BA (Hons) degree and enjoy managing projects within local government. I organise numerous events, co-ordinate community groups, install play areas and am a qualified play area inspector. 

 

I believe my education and work background has provided me with the relevant skills, experience and knowledge needed for this role. As a family, we believe it's important upholding Christian values.
